The Philadelphia Eagles are the only undefeated team left in the 2022 NFL season, and they are dominating on both sides of the ball.
On defense, they lead the league in sacks with 16 and have the highest turnover differential with eight.
They are also ranked third in total yards allowed (277.3) and tied for eighth in points allowed (17.8) per game.
Meanwhile, they are second in offensive yards per game with 435.5 and sixth in passing yards per game at 270.3.
The Eagles are also fourth in points scored per game with 28.8.
But Hurts won’t be able to execute their passing attack without getting enough time to throw.
That’s why offensive linemen like Lane Johson are crucial to an NFL team’s success.

FOX Sports NFL tweeted, “Lane Johnson got his QB’s back.”
The accompanying graphic showed that he has played 918 snaps since the last quarterback hit he allowed, which was in Week 7 of the previous season.
Likewise, he hasn’t allowed a sack in 1,105 snaps dating back to Week 10 of the 2020 season.
A Summary Of Johnson’s NFL Career
Johnson has been a part of the Eagles organization since he was the fourth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Throughout his career, he has three Pro Bowl selections and two All-Pro nods.
He helped the Eagles win Super Bowl LII and was rewarded with a four-year, $72 million contract extension in 2019.
That contract is currently tied for the eighth-highest deal among offensive tackles in terms of annual average value.
Johnson also sat out three games of the 2021 season due to his battle with depression.
In the same year, he also caught his first touchdown from Hurts.
