The Philadelphia Eagles offensive line was ranked the best in the league entering the 2022-2023 season. And, after Week 1, their ranking remains the same, according to Pro Football Focus.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES OFFENSIVE LINE
The offensive line in Philadelphia stands firm with Jordan Mailata, Landon Dickerson, Jason Kelce, Isaac Seumalo, and Lane Johnson.
Though PFF named Landon Dickerson as the weakest link, there really are no deficits on the line.
Despite not playing a single snap in his first two seasons, Mailata has become a powerhouse. Bookending him with Johnson on the opposite side, has created the best tackle duo in the entire league. Dickerson had a rough start during his rookie season, but found his way, earning the left guard spot — a position that once belonged to Seumalo. Regardless of the change, he played seamlessly on the right last week. Kelce also continues to play at an All-Pro level, without any semblance of issues from his prior elbow surgery.
Philadelphia also has solid depth behind their starters.
In Week 1 against the Detroit Lions, all five starters earned 69.0+ pass-blocking grades, allowing a combined six hurries and one sack.
The Eagles took home the win, but the offensive line believes Philadelphia can always continue to improve.
Following last week’s game, Jordan Mailata stated, “Just correcting the mistakes that we made. We know that, because of their high standards, the coaches hold us accountable to, and the players as well, the vet players, we just know that we could have done so much more, put up so many more points.”
“We know we’re a lot better than what we displayed on Sunday.”
Tonight, the Eagles take on the Minnesota Vikings for a double-header on Monday Night Football. Philadelphia will play the second game, beginning at 8:30 PM, as the offensive line fights to defend their first place spot.
