The best unit in Super Bowl 57 is the Philadelphia Eagles‘ offensive line.

They ranked No. 1 in PFF’s offensive line rankings heading into the season and kept that top spot each week of the campaign. Including the playoffs, all five starters rank inside the top 10 at their respective positions in PFF grade.

Not only does the Eagles line not have a weak link to be attacked, but all five members of the group are impact players who make a material difference to the offense.

Eagles starting offensive linemen: PFF grades and rank at the position (postseason included)
Pos. Player PFF grade Rank
LT Jordan Mailata 80.0 5th of 45
LG Landon Dickerson 70.9 6th of 45
C Jason Kelce 88.9 2nd of 42
RG Isaac Seumalo 73.0 8th of 49
RT Lane Johnson 84.4 2nd of 49

This season, right tackle Lane Johnson has been one of the best players in the league, regardless of position. And even though he's been dealing with an injury and playing short of 100%, he is still a wall on the right side of that line.

Against Nick Bosa in the NFC championship game, Johnson gave up ground on an early bull rush and allowed one more pressure over the rest of the game. He has surrendered only 11 hurries across 17 games this season.

Quarterback Jalen Hurts affects everything the Eagles do on offense because of his rushing threat, but the offensive line being as good as it is only acts as a force multiplier for that success. Any gain the offense gets because of the threat of Hurts causes a defender to be out of position is only magnified when linemen get to engage their blocks.

The NFC championship game was a highlight reel of crushing blocks on the San Francisco 49ers‘ interior, and they opened up some major rushing lanes for the Eagles to exploit against the league’s best defense and one of the best run defenses of the 2022 campaign.
