Kansas City’s ineffective play from the quarterback position must be frustrating for the team, as the rest of the pieces that a QB typically needs to succeed are already in place. The Chiefs boast an excellent running game, a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver, and a pair of outstanding bookend tackles that excel in pass protection. As colleague Khaled Elsayed noted in his recent article, left tackle Branden Albert ranks ninth among all eligible tackles with a Pass Blocking Efficiency of 96.6. His teammate Eric Winston has been nearly as good, surrendering just 23 combined pressures for a PBE of 95.2. The line’s ability to neutralize nearly any pass rushing threat from the edge, combined with the NFL’s fourth-best rushing attack makes it apparent that Kansas City’s offensive challenges can be pinned squarely on the man under center.
