We’ve heard discussions about this unit all season. Jason Kelce was seen as one of the weak links. We wondered if Jason Peters would remain healthy. Halapoulivaati Vaitai had to prove to us that he could play consistently.
When it was all said and done, Kelce would earn All-Pro honors. Peters confirmed the fears of Eagles fans when he went down with another injury. Vaitai, then, stepped into the spot vacated by Peters, and though there were both ups and downs, he succeeded when it was absolutely necessary for him to do so. Sure, there were issues with finding a left guard, but the Eagles would overcome that as well.

By the time the playoffs began, they were humming. They’ve been key to the Eagles’ running game. For the most part, they’ve kept their quarterback, Nick Foles, vertical. They were so good at times, PFF sees fit to name them as the best. We haven’t even mentioned Lane Johnson, without question one of the two or three best right tackles in football. Some may even see him as THE best.
The Eagles’ offensive line began the season as PFF’s best, and now, they finish there as well.
