The Kansas City Chiefs starting offensive line has been a question mark all offseason. We found ourselves championing one line only to see a player get hurt. Or a player get beat out by another player. Or a player switching positions. Whatever it was, we haven't been able to get a handle on the Chiefs offensive line.
That continued this week with the Eric Fisher situation here the Chiefs announced on Monday he would be the starting right tackle only to see him not play and newcomer Jah Reid start instead.
It's not just one position though. Check out the difference between last year's Week 1 line and this year's:

I mean, that's incredible. JJ Watt did his thing and racked up stats but the Chiefs line was good enough, especially when you put that into the context of pretty much everyone expecting them to get destroyed against the Texans front seven.
LT Donald Stephenson, LG Ben Grubbs and C Mitch Morse (especially Morse) played well. RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and RT Jah Reid struggled more but did enough for the Chiefs to open the field in the passing game and win the game.
