BEN MUTH was raised in Phoenix, Arizona and had season tickets to both the Cardinals and Sun Devils. As a result, he insists on irrationally defending Jake Plummer as quarterback. He left the state to go to college in California. He played offensive line at Stanford from 2004-08 and was named first team all conference in his final season. He now literally bleeds Cardinal red (for the Arizona Cardinals and Stanford). He was picked up by the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2009 but released later that same year, due to combination of injury and giving up too many sacks in practice. Ben contributes to both Football Outsiders and SB Nation, and currently lives in Dallas.
How have the Cardinals won three in a row, including last Sunday's victory over the Giants? Ben Muth shows that it's mostly due to the cohesive teamwork of the offensive line, not the mistake-prone rookie quarterback.

Offensive line expert Ben Muth looks at Arizona's loss to the Cardinals and finds poor performance from linemen as individuals and as a unit, and a quarterback who doesn't know how to handle pressure. But he also finds a creative scheme that leaves him wanting to see more.

The L.A. Rams are headed to the Super Bowl, thanks in part to an offensive line that had a great night protecting Jared Goff. But it wasn't perfect. What did the Saints do that gave the Rams trouble, and will similar tactics work for New England in Atlanta?
