Default O- Line played well today

100 yard rusher with Mendy and I think only 2 sacks of Ben. Neither sack was a free rush. Of course the safety was their fault. For as beat up as the line was, I think they played pretty well. The Jets D is pretty good and they held their own today.

i think they played awesome but Ben looked mediocre. as for the saftey, if your going to run from the endzone why not give it to the runner averaging over 5 yards a carry. personally i would of thrown

Three sacks, but honestly they were all on Ben. He had time on two and didn't read the other when Ben didn't pick up the blitzter. This line gets a lot of crap, but that was one of their better games of the season.

I agree that for the most part, the o-line looked pretty solid. The problem is that I know that can't play that way game in and game out. There's a good chance they'll suck this coming thursday

The safety IMO was not on the OL. Kemo was pulling to lead the RB. The play call was horrendous and with our slowest RB. Had Mendy been there it would have been a 5 or 6 yard gain.

I'll have to go back and look, but I'm betting that Scott was supposed to chip Taylor and whiffed.

I guess Arians is too blame for Ben's two fumbles as well.
