Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles put on a one-man highlight show, tying a franchise record with five touchdowns.

Charles led the way for the Chiefs in a 56-31 rout of the Oakland Raiders that clinched at least a wild-card spot for the AFC West franchise.

"A big part of this team depends on me," Charles told reporters. "Once I'm healthy this offense can go a long way and this team can go a long way."

Charles caught four touchdowns on eight receptions for 195 yards, the third-most yardage for a running back since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. He also rushed for one score.
