Chiefs Offensive Line Off To Great Start

One of the first things to jump out at me was the play of the Kansas City Chiefs first string offensive line.  This has been a sore spot for the Chiefs for a while, so it was definitely something I was going to be watching.  The unit did quite a bit to make me think they are going to be just fine this year, something they haven’t done in quite some time.

The running game was moving along with ease as the Chiefs racked up 135 yards on 29 carries (4.8 yards per carry).  That included an excellent opening drive that saw Spencer Ware with room to run and capping things off with a goal line push for a touchdown.  That’s a feather in the cap for this offensive line.

 In the passing game, both Alex Smith and Nick Foles had time to work with.  The Seahawks are a top tier defense, yet they were unable to get after the Chiefs quarterbacks early in the game.  That gave KC time to work some things and really get their offense working into the game.
