The Bills notched four sacks against the Ravens and while a lot of that comes down to Lamar Jackson being more of a scrambler, the Chiefs’ offensive line has to be better, especially with Mahomes’ injuries. Mahomes wasn’t sacked during the win over Cleveland, but Henne was and the Browns also totaled three quarterback hits.

The o-line needs to put on this kind of performance again. Not only did they protect Mahomes as best they could, but they allowed running lanes for Williams, and that allowed him to have a nice day rushing the pigskin.
It’s been an experiment trying to piece together the offensive line week-after-week, but this unit has slowly been improving. Here’s to hoping for another sack-free day for Mahomes.
Mahomes is healthy enough to start on Sunday and that’s great because this team needs him if they want to reach their second straight Super Bowl. Even with Mahomes able to go, the Chiefs will still need to run the ball more, as the signal-caller clearly had a nagging toe injury and it showed.
Fans should still be keeping an eye on Mahomes’ toe injury, but him being able to play on Sunday is the best-case scenario for the Chiefs. He’s the heart and soul of this team and while Henne was clutch when he needed to be, there’s no question who Chiefs fans want to see under center come Sunday.
