Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl outside linebacker Tamba Hali is off to a slow start. Hali has only produced nine tackles and one sack this season since returning from a one-game suspension for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy, the Ravens haven't forgotten how much trouble he gave them during a 30-7 AFC wild-card playoff victory over the Chiefs two seasons ago.

Hali recorded seven tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and a pass deflection in that game.

"Great athlete, good player, knows how to punch his hands," Hali said of offensive tackle Michael Oher during a conference call. "He gets to the spot, forces you to make decisions, protects the inside very well, strong.

"Hopefully I’ll be able to use what I was able to do in prior years, but this year is a little different. It will be interesting how he and I will match up for the entire game.” Hali is off to a quiet start , but history suggests he'll rebound strongly. For his career, he has 54 1/2 sacks and 22 forced fumbles.
