Few things are more important to a team’s success than the quality of its offensive line. Disastrous lines, or even disastrous weak-link mismatches, can determine the outcome of games, while strong units provide an incredible advantage to an offense.

We will be monitoring NFL offensive line play all season long while highlighting the biggest weak-link players for each group. With Week 3 of the 2023 NFL regular season in the books, here are the weekly rankings and each unit's best player.

WR:CB Matchup Chart

1. Green Bay Packers (Up 2)

Projected Week 4 starters:

LT Rasheed Walker
LG Royce Newman
C Josh Myers
RG Jon Runyan
RT Zach Tom

  • Second-year left tackle Rasheed Walker played in the injured David Bakhtiari‘s place. Walker allowed just one pressure on 55 dropbacks.
  • The Packers' offensive line leads the NFL after three weeks with a pass-blocking efficiency rating of 93.9.
Best player: Zach Tom
  • Tom has yet to allow a sack or a quarterback hit this season.

2. Philadelphia Eagles (Down 1)

Projected Week 4 starters:

LT Jordan Mailata
LG Landon Dickerson
C Jason Kelce
RG Cam Jurgens
RT Lane Johnson

  • Left guard Landon Dickerson exited Monday’s game due to a knee injury and was replaced by Sua Opeta.
  • Center Jason Kelce struggled against Tampa Bay’s bigger interior defensive linemen and finished with a 54.9 PFF grade — his lowest in a game since the 2020 season.
Best player: Lane Johnson
  • Johnson was Philadelphia’s highest-graded offensive lineman against the Buccaneers after he did not allow a single pressure for the second week in a row.

3. Dallas Cowboys (Down 1)

Projected Week 4 starters:

LT Tyron Smith
LG Tyler Smith
C Tyler Biadasz
RG Zack Martin
RT Terence Steele

  • The Cowboys were without three of their starting offensive linemen against the Cardinals. Chuma Edoga played left tackle, Brock Hoffman took over at center and T.J. Bass slotted in at right guard.
  • Tyler Smith impressed in his season debut. He did not allow any pressure at left guard.
Best player: Zack Martin
  • Zack Martin sat out of Dallas' loss to Arizona, but it is “possible” he will play in Week 4, according to team executive Stephen Jones.

4. Detroit Lions (Up 1)

Projected Week 4 starters:

LT Penei Sewell
LG Jonah Jackson
C Frank Ragnow
RG Graham Glasgow
RT Colby Sorsdal

  • Injuries are starting to pile up for the Detroit offensive line. Halapoulivaati Vaitai and Taylor Decker were inactive for this game, while backup right tackle Matt Nelson and his replacement, Dan Skipper, exited the game with injuries. As a result, the Lions finished Week 3 with guard Colby Sorsdal playing at right tackle.
  • Penei Sewell continues to impress at his old position of left tackle. Over the past two weeks, Sewell has earned a 77.3 pass-blocking grade, which ranks eighth among left tackles.
Best player: Frank Ragnow
  • Ragnow had an uncharacteristically bad game against the Falcons, surrendering four pressures after not allowing a single pressure in the first two weeks.
