Seahawks offensive line: Every Russell Wilson dropback against the Eagles

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Since the acquisition of Duane Brown, the Seahawks’ offensive line has started to show signs of life, with national analysts beginning to notice. Sunday’s performance against the Eagles was arguably their best outing yet, holding a deep and dangerous pass rushing group in check.

Here is this week’s pass protection cutup so you can see for yourselves:

This is very encouraging. Both tackles were solid, and with the exception of the guards being beaten by Brandon Graham a couple times, the interior held up as well.

Here are a few specific plays that jumped out to me when I was going through this:

The Next Challenge

Sunday’s game brings Calais Campbell and the Jaguars. Campbell has historically made a living feasting on Seattle’s offensive line, so this will be a true test. I would imagine that the Seahawks will do everything they can to avoid leaving Ethan Pocic matched up one on one with Campbell to avoid a repeat of what Campbell did to Seattle’s guards last year:

The following game will see the Seahawks face off against the Rams, who pressured Russell Wilson on an astounding 51% of his dropbacks when the two teams played earlier this year. Winning these two games would put Seattle in the driver’s seat for the division. Will the offensive line be up to the challenge?
