All of a sudden, Chiefs offensive line looks like a strength

New, comments

The addition of Mitch Schwartz this offseason and the continued maturation of Eric Fisher, Mitch Morse and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was believed to make the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line a strength. It looked nothing like that in the first month of the season as the Chiefs offensive line gave up 13 sacks in the first four games.

Suddenly though the Chiefs offensive line is looking good. They have surrendered just one sack in the past two games.

“I thought the offensive line played well from what I saw here,” Andy Reid said after the game. “We ran the ball fairly well. We threw the ball better. We had protection and threw the ball fairly well. So, I think the guys are just working together. They seem confident – playing good football right now.”

Let’s point out the obvious. The Chiefs played two bad defenses in Oakland and New Orleans. You know what though? The Chiefs are going to keep playing bad defenses for a while. Colts (28th), Jaguars (26th), Panthers (29th) and Bucs (26th). The true test will be a defense like Denver’s but the Chiefs will take these sack-less games while they got them.
