Howie Roseman has put together a video-game-like roster for the 2022 Philadelphia Eagles.
Ever since the off-season, this Eagles team looked a step or two ahead of most of their competitors, and they backed it up when it mattered the most on the gridiron.
Of course, Jalen Hurts also had plenty to do with that success, taking a massive leap forward and being arguably the league’s most-improved player.
But as good as he was, his offensive line also deserves plenty of praise and credit, as they gave him plenty of time to operate, a lot of room to work with his arms and feet, and kept the rival team’s head-hunters away from him more often than not.
So, it wasn’t much of a surprise to see that they have the top-two ranked offensive linemen in this year’s postseason, according to Pro Football Focus.
Per PFF, Jordan Mailata (86.4), and Landon Dickerson (85.2), have been the best in the game at that position thus far, and it would be tough to argue with that statement.

However, they’ll now face arguably their toughest task yet, with Frank Clark, Chris Jones, and the Kansas City Chiefs on deck for the Super Bowl.
Oddsmakers believe the Eagles should be favored ahead of that matchup, and that’s not a far-fetched thought considering how stacked with talent they are at every single position.
But they’ll need those two at their best to give Jalen Hurts a chance to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and win their second Vince Lombardi trophy.NEXT: NFL Analyst Breaks Down Eagles' Offseason Brilliance
