Chiefs OL Trey Smith has NFL’s longest snap streak without allowing a sack

Protecting Patrick Mahomes is paramount to the Kansas City Chiefs’ success on offense, and one of the team’s linemen has done a particularly outstanding job of keeping the reigning MVP on his feet.

Third-year guard Trey Smith currently holds the NFL’s longest snap streak without allowing a sack.

Smith’s efforts in pass protection have been the stuff of legend among Chiefs fans who remember how Kansas City’s depleted depth up front arguably cost the team a win in Super Bowl LV.

The Chiefs’ investment in the offensive line has helped keep Kansas City’s air attack afloat since 2021 when the team signed veteran guard Joe Thuney and drafted Smith and center Creed Humphrey.

The talented trio on the interior of the Chiefs’ line has become one of the most recognizable groups in the NFL, and with any luck, will continue to keep Mahomes clean in the pocket for years to come.
