Buffalo's running backs didn't run for many yards against the Colts, but that's OK -- Josh Allen did, and he threw for a bunch too. Ben Muth shows how Buffalo's line cleared the way for their quarterback to shine against Indianapolis.
The obvious star of the Buffalo offense is Josh Allen, and the Bills will go as far in the playoffs as their young quarterback can take them. But his offensive line showed against Miami that they can give their passer every opportunity to shine.
Buffalo's offensive line showed excellent cohesion in keeping Josh Allen upright against Pittsburgh's elaborate blitz schemes on Sunday night. Unfortunately, that was almost wasted by the performance of one lineman who kept losing one-on-one matchups.
With their defense and special teams putting on a dominant show, the New England Patriots didn't need much help from their offensive line in a 45-0 blowout of the Chargers. Ben Muth breaks down the creative, effective, and not-quite-legal tactics the Patriots used on their opening touchdown drive.
The Minnesota Vikings got a good performance from their offensive tackles against Carolina, but Ben Muth wasn't nearly as impressed by what they got from their guards and center.

They come from the land of the ice and snow to take Dalvin Cook where he needs to go. The Vikings' horde of offensive linemen led their running back to a big day in a victory over Green Bay.
