The Chiefs have been down right dominant the last three weeks along the line of scrimmage and that’s on both sides of the ball.

The offensive line has been depleted due to injuries and suspensions but has been the driving force in the Chiefs new identity on offense. When a team dominates on the ground like the Chiefs have the last three games it clearly starts up front.

The two who stand out most are Rodney Hudson and Eric Fisher, the only two players along the front five that were here, and started games for this team last season. Hudson dominated Vince Wilfork last night and even leveled him to the ground on Knile Davis’s 48 yard scamper.

The Chiefs need to get him a new contract this season. 

Look, I know I’ve been Fisher’s biggest critic but it’s been for good reason. Early on, Fisher had reoccurring themes to his game such as dropping his head, losing his leverage, and stopping his feet. Those three things alone were things that I would see in every game dating back to last season.

However, the last three weeks, not so much. Fisher looks healthy and could be on the verge of turning that corner. The guy was the number one pick for a reason and maybe, just maybe were starting to fully understand why.
