The Kansas City Chiefs have brought quarterbacks to the ground for nine sacks this season. Come Monday night at Arrowhead Stadium, it will be up to the New England Patriots’ offensive line to keep that number at nine.

The next opportunity to avert the trend is against a fast Kansas City front, bordered by veteran stand-up linebacker Tamba Hali. (more…)
