Few things are more important to an NFL 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 13 of the 2023 NFL regular season in the books, here are the weekly rankings and each unit’s best player.
Right tackle Lane Johnson returned from his groin injury, putting the Eagles’ offensive line at full strength against the 49ers.
While the unit gave up just one quarterback hit and no sacks, it was also responsible for 22 quarterback hurries, the most allowed by any team in Week 13. As a result, Philadelphia finished just 20th out of 26 teams in pass-blocking efficiency rating this week.
While Mailata gave up 21 total pressures over the first eight games of the season, he surrendered the same number of pressures in his past four games. The 11 pressures he allowed against the 49ers was a career-worst mark.
While left guard Jonah Jackson returned from injury against New Orleans, the Detroit offensive line was not at full strength for long. Center Frank Ragnow left in Week 13 with a knee injury in the second quarter. As a result, rookie Colby Sorsdal entered the game at right guard and Graham Glasgow moved over to center.
Glasgow — who played both at guard and center against the Saints — finished Week 13 with an 86.1 pass-blocking grade, the sixth-highest mark among all offensive linemen.
