Number 12 overall ~~~ Browns ~~~

starting Lineup:

Left Tackle: Desmond Harrison, 60.4
Left Guard: Joel Bitonio, 64.7
Center: JC Tretter, 74.5
Right Guard: Kevin Zeitler, 67.1
Right Tackle: Chris Hubbard, 61.2

J.C. Tretter has been your highest-graded Browns offensive lineman so far with a 74.5 overall grade. He’s been one of the most consistent pass-protecting centers in the league over the course of his career with four straight seasons now with 80-plus pass-block grades.


No. 30 ~~~ Bengals ~~~

Starting Lineup:

Left Tackle: Cordy Glenn, 55.6
Left Guard: Clint Boling, 68.0
Center: Trey Hopkins, 54.2
Right Guard: Alex Redmond, 53.7
Right Tackle: Bobby Hart, 56.3

There may not be a more thankless player in the NFL than Bengals left guard Clint Boling. Early in his career, he was outshined by left tackle Andrew Whitworth then right guard Kevin Zeitler along the Bengals’ offensive line. Now, he’s been unfairly grouped in with one of the worst offensive lines in the league. The truth is, he’s been a consistently above average guard his entire career, and his 78.7 pass-block grade so far this season is easily the highest among Bengals starters.

Thoughts :

I think these are pretty accurate, Browns OL is pretty solid and theres no real weak link. They don't get blown off the ball alot. Their inability to run screen plays has made their OL look worse than what it is and the fact people still like to blitz with LBs a fair amount because bringing pressure against rookies is still the go to for just about every DC.

For the Bengals, Price not playing right now has hurt the pass protection and the right side of the o line is pretty atrocious. As bengals play better fronts as the season goes on we'll see what the o line is made of. Though I do think 30 is a bit harsh.
