The patchwork offensive line
The Chiefs offensive line has gone through several changes due to injuries or opt outs this year, but they looked as good as ever in Week 6 with more reserves among the starters than ever. Can that hold up again?
Nick Allegretti is going to get another chance to show what he can do at left guard after impressing with his brute strength and drive against the Buffalo Bills. Mike Remmers also held down the fort nicely at right tackle after being forced to slide out for an injured Mitchell Schwartz. Daniel Kilgore has earned another start at center after unexpectedly taking over for Austin Reiter in Week 6.
The Chiefs offensive line was the star of the show in a surprising rushing attack that overwhelmed the Bills last Sunday. However, let’s be honest about the light boxes shown by Buffalo all game. It also should be noted that the Bills defensive front hasn’t exactly been a celebrated unit in 2020.
If these Chiefs can look the part once again against Denver, it will be a heartening performance for Eric Bieniemy and the Chiefs offense in the wake of so many obstacles.
