" In truth much of the damage was done in failing to pick up the blitz" "However bad the O-line appeared in this game for the Chiefs it wasn’t taking place in Brandon Albert’s backyard. The left tackle was perfect in pass protection on 45 snaps blocking the rush, the only member of the Chiefs line not to surrender something. He was also a pretty strong part of what little run game Kansas City had, at one point caving in his side of the line to allow a nice cutback lane. That performance was more than made up for by Jeff Allen to his inside. Allen allowed a pair of knockdowns and three more hurries as well as coughing up a holding penalty on his way to a -9.3 grade." "Ropati Pitoitua (+3.4) had arguably his finest game as a Chief, knocking down Carson Palmer, batting a pass down and making three stops in the run game, a couple of which were very impressive displays against the Raiders left guard Cooper Carlisle." "– Chiefs running back Shaun Draughn has no business picking up the blitz based on this performance. Whether by failing to recognize it, getting to it late, or simply being run right over he allowed a sack, knockdown or hurry on every occasion he was asked to do it."
