Find out where the Buffalo Bills offensive line ranks within the AFC East.
As the old saying goes, “Behind every great man is a great woman.” A great support system is key for anything to be successful. Well in the NFL, in front of a great quarterback is a great offensive line. They get judged on how well they play based on things like how often the quarterback gets sacked, penalties, how well the running game is working and quarterback pressures given up. These guys in the trenches don’t get the respect that they deserve.
Continuity is a great thing and if you have a great thing going, you want to keep that momentum flowing. Having a fully healthy offensive line for a season is a feat on its own. And when one link in a strong chain breaks, it can be replaced but that link can be easily exposed and the quarterback could be introduced to the turf time and time again.
The free agency frenzy and draft are way behind us now and we have a clearer picture as to who will be starting on the lines in 2020. If you look more in depth, the teams in the division all made some moves and have improved. The New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins made the most moves strengthening what was considered a very poor group and their 2019 stats can follow up that claim. The Buffalo Bills made some minor tweaks and the New England Patriots made sure that their strongest lineman stuck around.
All of these teams have a long way to go if they want to be mentioned in the same breath as the Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys and more. Those teams have elite offensive lines and it shows with their durability and effective run games. But strides have been made by the AFC East to move towards those teams.
So without further ado, the rankings of the AFC East continues as we finish the offensive side of the ball with the offensive lines.
