KANSAS CITY (AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs have never be confused with a pass-happy team and an injury earlier this season to Jamaal Charles made coach Todd Haley re-evaluate exactly how the offense was constructed.

The emergence of first-round draft pick Jonathan Baldwin has only helped matters. An impressive wide receiver out of Pittsburgh, Baldwin spent the first five games inactive after hurting his thumb in a fight with a teammate. But he's been the model pupil in practice, and the past two weeks he's finally had a chance to show in games what he can do.

Baldwin had five catches for 82 yards in last week's 23-20 overtime win over San Diego, including a 39-yard touchdown grab, the first of his career.
