Offensive Line Analysis vs Washington
- Updated: December 23, 2014
Lane Johnson (RT)
Lane Johnson had a rough outing. He was matched up against outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan who routinely beat him with either a bull rush (image 1) or speed rush (image 2). Kerrigan beat Johnson with a speed rush early in the game to record a sack and forced fumble on Sanchez (image 2).
Jason Peters (RT)
This was one of those matchups where Jason Peters at this late in his career is not going to dominate. When matched up against outside linebackers who are faster than him they tend to get deep in the pocket (image 1). In image 2 outside linebacker Trevardo Williams after getting Peters on his heels beat him inside to record the sack on Sanchez (Image 2).
Andrew Gardner (RG)
Andrew Gardner did a much better job in pass protection as he did a good job of holding his ground and moving his feet not to give up any sacks.
Jason Kelce (C)
Kelce had a solid performance. After dealing with injuries most of the season, Kelce has started to regain his 2013 Pro Bowl form. On LeSean McCoy’s touchdown run, Jason Kelce initially chips on the nose tackle (image 1) before getting out to the middle linebacker who is flowing fast (image 2) and keeping his hands locked on him to eventually pancake him to allow McCoy to skate in the end zone (image 3).
Evan Mathis (LG)
Mathis did a good job in pass protection but missed a couple blocks in the running game. Mathis has never completely regained his 2013 All-Pro after early injuries.
