Hats off to the entire offensive line. Some had better games then others but overall, everyone either met or exceeded expectations. The star of the group was LT Tyron Smith proving his worth as the no. 9 overall pick 3 years ago. Though RT Doug Free did get blown up on the play QB Tony Romo bruised his ribs, overall, he played well. The o-line, opened holes for RB DeMarco Murray, allowing him to average 4.3 ypc. On top of that, Romo only sacked twice was a nice change of what we’ve seen from this unit in years past.

KC has a good defense. Their secondary can lock up on the outside preventing WRs from opening up early so the line will have to hold their blocks for a half-second longer. Chiefs OLBs Tamba Hali and Justin Houston (3.5 combined sacks Week 1) are a handful, while DT Dontari Poe has shown an ability to create inside pressure which is a QBs worse nightmare. If this line can keep Romo upright and open holes for Murray, it should be a big day for the offense.
