Is Dante Scar 'working from home'?

Seriously, this Offensive Line...

 

2nd best in the NFL so far according to PFF;

2. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

Pressures allowed: 14
Rush yards before contact average: 2.1

Much of the New England offensive line's decline last season was due to a lack of receiver separation and the increased length of time Tom Brady had to hold onto the football. By pivoting to a run-heavy scheme with Cam Newton under center, the team has been able to mitigate much of that issue.

Plus play from young offensive linemen, such as rookie Michael Onwenu and third-year tackle Jermaine Eluemunor, has also gone a long way in boosting the grades of the Patriots' line. New England now has a unique and diverse offense that causes defenders all kinds of problems, creating just enough hesitation to steal an advantage for their offensive line up front.

 

We have had pieces missing, and other pieces come in and we haven't missed a beat. They're opening up running lanes, they're giving QBs enough time. We lose Andrews, and Thuney/Ferentz come in and look like Andrews....Onwenu has been top 10 graded Guard by PFF, and he stepped in at RT and didn't give up a pressure. 

Week 1 - the OL (in particular Thuney and Mason) MAN HANDLED their opposites, run game flourished

Week 2 - Cam on a few throws had a lot of time, but this was their weakest week

Week 3 - OL again dominated their opponents, we ran all over LV

Week 4 - A massively impressive week, on a disrupted build-up, with interchanges and rookies on the line, we still ran all over the opposition. Admitedly they were without their best player, but we were without 2 of ours on the line. 

 

 

MVP of this team is the secondary probably, but I'm putting the OL 2nd or 3rd.....

I'm legit shocked the line has done as well as it has.  That was my biggest concern/question coming in.

Onwenu is currently the second-highest graded guard in the entire NFL, at 92.2 overall. He’s allowed only two pressures on 103 pass-blocking snaps this season.

Thuney at Center is a beast needs to get extended. Can let Andrews walk
