Grade: 89/100

Football experts always emphasize the importance of setting the tone early in games and how much the first few plays matter. In the game against the Bills, Creed Humphrey did exactly that and more, with an immaculate opening drive. He is the anchor of this offensive line and emerged victorious in more ways than one on Sunday.

The way that Humphrey stood out most to me was his pulling and being the lead blocker for a Kansas City running back on several occasions. His athleticism to snap the ball and deftly block a defender has been evident on more than one occasion.

Whether Humphrey just held off a defender long enough or drove them five yards downfield, he was great against Buffalo. His only issues came from being overly aggressive and missing a block when pulling one or two separate plays.

Humphrey, like most of his peers, did not allow a single pressure against the Bills. He is the only Chiefs lineman to do so in the last four games. Although he will have his hands full against the Ravens, fans can be happy with his impressive performance against the Bills.
