Emmanuel Ogbah Stands Out Amongst An Unimpressive Line
Kansas City’s line should be much better then it is. Chris Jones had 15.5 sacks last season and Frank Clark has been paid a lot of money to be just as destructive as Jones. Both players have fallen well short of their goals thus far. As a matter of fact, even Alex Okafor and Derrick Nnadi have fallen short of expectations thus far.
It’s a good thing Emmanuel Ogbah has been able to step up and exceed expectations.
With 1.5 sacks (led the team), 2 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 pass defense, and 3 hits on the quarterback, Lamar Jackson had to have been tired of seeing number 90 coming his way by the end of the game.
It can be argued that this was made possible by Clark and Jones picking up double teams nearly all game, or by Tyrann Mathieu applying a lot of pressure and making Jackson step up into Ogbah’s domain, but it is impossible to say Ogbah did not capitalize on the opportunity he was given.
