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

Flimbreakdownbanner-300x134_medium

Week 16

The Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Oakland Raiders on Christmas eve, 13-16. The Chiefs fall to 6-9 on the season and the Raiders improve to 8-7.

The Chiefs implement a couple of new blocking wrinkles during the game, which appeared to be an attempt to breath new life into their running game. For the most part, those new wrinkles was a nice mix up from what what the Chiefs did during the rest of the game.

Jon Asamoah ends his day with a 91% run assignment grade but only a +0 dominance score. That means he was consistent in his blocking but rarely dominated his defender. In pass protection, Jon had an 88% and a -2 dominance score. That 88% isn't bad...but looking deeper we find that Asamoah received 11 help blocks in pass protection.

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 7:29 in the 1st quarter, Ryan Lilja and Casey Wiegmann have a nice run double on a defender. We are seeing a few more run doubles the past few weeks from the Chiefs.
  • When Branden Albert gets hurt for a few plays...Barry Richardson goes to left tackle and Steve Maneri goes to right tackle.
  • At 3:56 in the 1st quarter, Jon Asamoah has a nice pull block to the left of the formation. Jon ends the game with a +4 on his pull blocks...pretty good.
  • At 6:07 in the 2nd quarter, both Cassey Wiegmann and Jon Asamoah pull to the right of the formation. Haven't seen that for a while, from the Chiefs.
  • At 8:45 in the 3rd quarter, Ryan Lilja has a nice pull block and kick out. You can see the pic, below. He is at the top right of the screen, McClain leading the play. The Chiefs pick up nice yardage on the play.

  • You can see one of the Chiefs new wrinkles during the Raiders game in the pic, below. On the play the center and tackle release to the 2nd level while Asamoah blocks down on the nose guard and Anthony Becht, who is lined up outside the tight end, traps down on the a defender. Thomas Jones makes his way between Becht and Pope in the pick, below.

    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?
