Kansas City Chiefs vs Jets: Breaking Down The O-Line Film

Flimbreakdownbanner-300x134_medium

Week 14

The Kansas City Chiefs lay an egg on the road against the New York Jets, 10-37. The Chiefs fall to 5-8 on the season and the Jets move up to 8-5.

It is hard to pick an offensive lineman for the game this week. The run blocking grades for the Chiefs is poor, to put it nicely. Kansas City ends the first half with only 4 yards of offense. In 2011, the Chief's offensive line has allowed 21% of their running plays to be stuffed for no gain or negative yards. If you are interested in those types of line stats...then go, here.

But Branden Albert did have an okay game. He ends the day with a 78% run assignment grade, +0 dominance score, and a 93% pass assignment grade, +1 dominance score. He made a couple mistakes in picking up blitzes, but held his own for the most part.

If you would like to see how the other AFC West offensive lines did against the Jets for a comparison...then go here: San Diego vs Jets, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders.

Let's take a look at the grades for the Chiefs...

Team Run Blocking
Power Blocking
Power Blocking Score
2nd Level Blocks
Did the lineman get the job done or not? These grades are good for understanding value for a team and not necessarily for comparing across teams. A game in the mid 80s to 90% is a decent score.
How often did the offensive lineman dominate the block or how often did he get dominated? These scores are good for comparing across teams and finding the most dominant lineman in the league.
Anything over zero is a good score. The more over zero the more the lineman dominated the defender. Each lineman is scored a minus for being dominated, a zero for a draw, or a plus for dominating the defender.
The number of successes over failures for the lineman when blocking linebackers and safeties on the second level. The lineman must be athletic to accomplish a high second level score.

Run Blocking Notes:

  • At 11:39 in the 2nd quarter, Jon Asamoah lets his defender take an inside on a run play and gives up a tackle for a loss. You can see him in the pic, below. His defender is already in the backfield and the running back has just taken the ball. Asamoah ends the day with a 64% run assignment grade.

  • At :44 in the 3rd quarter, Branden Albert does a nice job of pulling to his right, getting down field, and blocking the defender in space. One of the plays that had some bright spots.

  • At 3:38 in the 4th quarter, Barry Richardson and Casey Wiegmann get beat for a safety. Chiefs are worst in the AFC West in being stuffed at the line of scrimmage.
  • Not many run blocking highlight this week.

    Did the lineman get the job done or not? These grades are good for understanding value for a team and not necessarily for comparing across teams. A game in the 90% is a good score for pass blocking.
    How often did the offensive lineman dominate the block or how often did he get dominated? Each lineman is scored a minus for being dominated, a zero for a draw, or a plus for dominating the block. How often did the offensive lineman give up pressure on the quarterback? Every once and a while a lineman can do his job but give up pressure on the QB. This stat will help glean more info from the line grades.
    How often did the offensive coordinator provide help for a tough defender or a struggling lineman. Yea, two lineman ended up with the same grade...but how much help did either of them get?

    Pass Blocking Notes:

    • Branden Albert did an okay job this week in pass protection. He did have a few more "help block" assignments against the Jets than normal...and that improved his grade a little. But one thing he missed (twice) in the game was the blitz pick up. He needs to pass the slanting defender off to the inside (Lilja) quicker and pick up the blitzing defenders. You can see him below. He look like he is going to pass the defender to Lilja and then pick up a blitzer...but he does not.

    ***From Chiefs game on CBS

    • Barry Richardson and Ryan Lilja both get beat at 9:04 in the 2nd quarter. Lilja's defender ends up getting the sack.
    • At :44 in the 2nd, Richardson and Jon Asamoah are pass combo blocking together and Barry sees a blitzing defender and peals off to pick him up. Jon can't handle the defender and gives up the sack.
