The Kansas City Chiefs offensive line was solid against the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday which is a welcome sight to see with some of the offensive lines we've seen in KC in the last few years. Eric Winston is the big new addition this year and he's had a solid start to his Chiefs career.

The Chiefs ran over the right tackle and the right end a combined seven times. The Chiefs three rushes over the right end gained nearly 12 yards per carry, good for second in the NFL. They were a lot more successful running to the right than the left and a big part of that is Eric Winston.

Let's use Jamaal Charles' 46-yard run as an example.

There's your guy Eric Winston lined up at right tackle with the tight end, Tony Moeaki, next to him. Jamaal Charles is in the back field and he'll take the handoff to the right side.

You can see right away that this could be a big play. Winston is going to get to the second level which means Charles is going to get to the second level. That's not good for defenses.

Charles is taking the handoff there and he has two blockers in front of him, Winston and Ryan Lilja, who is pulling from the left side.

Look at Winston make the initial contact there. It's over and the Falcons defender probably knows it. Charles is unreal at his ability to cut so this is plenty of room for him.

Look at the seal. That's more than enough space for Charles. It puts him into the secondary which turns into a race, a race Charles will win often.

This is the result. Charles with the 46-yard gain in the open field. If he weren't tripped up at the last second he was gone.
