Jeff Backus: B
Jeff Backus did a great job of protecting quarterback Matthew Stafford. He does not help in the run-blocking game, but that is not a particular strength of his. Overall, Backus was great versus the Eagles as they had no sacks on Stafford. He took a few false starts, but the results speak for themselves.
Rob Sims: B
Rob Sims did a nice job of keeping Stafford clean in this one. Sims was really effective in pass protection and he did an adequate job of giving the Lions running backs some room to operate. He is quietly a very good player and a stabilizing force playing next to Jeff Backus. Though he took a few penalties that were out of character, he is one of those players who rarely gets called for negative plays.
Dominic Raiola: C+
Much like the other offensive linemen, Raiola was fairly effective in pass protection. The Lions aren’t asking Raiola to open up holes for them in the running game, as his job is to make the calls for the offensive line. Raiola looks physically outmatched in every game as he struggles to move anybody off the ball.
Stephen Peterman: C+
Stephen Peterman was good in this game, as he only took one penalty. He did not create any push in the running game and the Lions could not run the ball behind him.
Gosder Cherilus: C
From a penalty perspective, Cherilus was a problem. He made a poor choice and took a personal foul for unsportsmanlike conduct. While he performed well in pass protection, he lacked the ability to move the Eagles' defensive linemen to give the running backs any room to run the ball.
Riley Reiff: B
Reiff entered the game in the jumbo package for the Lions and played alongside both Backus and Cherilus. He is an excellent run blocker and it showed as the Lions ran the ball well with Reiff in the game.
