The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills will meet on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium for the first game of the 2011 regular season and it's the first opportunity for LB Tamba Hali to continue his assault on quarterbacks. Hali ended the 2010 season with 14.5 sacks which lead the AFC.
The Chiefs sack leader should feel good to see stories just days before the season about the Bills still finalizing their offensive line. Specifically, the Bills starting left tackle isn't known but it's believed to be Demetrius Bell, a 2008 seventh round pick (and son of Karl Malone).
"We have not decided exactly which way we're going to go with that, but that looks like it's going to be (that way)," said Gailey of Bell starting at left tackle, per the Bills official site.
Tamba had 1.5 sacks last year against Buffalo in the Chiefs overtime win so we know he's capable of creating some havoc back there. The Bills also realize this which means they're going to have to pay even more attention to Hali, which could create opportunities elsewhere along the defense.
Here's to Tamba starting fast en route to leading the NFL in sacks.
