Rams offensive line vs Chiefs defense

It’s been a tough couple of years for the Rams offensive line, and this preseason has been no different. The offensive line has given up seven total sacks, with five of those coming from the first team offense. Foles has been sacked for three of those seven occurrences. Even when they are not giving up a sack, Foles and company are being rushed out of the pocket on a consistent basis. The line needs to cut down on simple mistakes. Last week, The starting five were penalized twice for 15-yard face mask penalties and struggled to form a pocket around the run and pass game. With the injury to Jamon Brown and Rodger Saffold, the line will be shifted once again. Whoever the starting five are come thursday, they need to protect, and cut down on errors. The Rams have a solid passing and running game that needs to be let loose.
