The Giants offensive line has performed surprisingly well this season. They were widely considered a weak spot coming into 2012, even by offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, but they have allowed an NFL-low six sacks and are spearheading a running game that is averaging a respectable 116.3 yards per game.
A big reason for the offensive line's success has been the play of Beatty. According to Pro Football Focus, Beatty ranked 38th among offensive tackles in 2011 with an overall score of 5.0. Specifically, he was really poor pass-blocking with a score of minus-0.2.
Through seven games this season, Beatty has been dramatically better with an overall score of 9.8, good for 10th among offensive tackles. He has also seen a significant improvement in his pass-blocking with a score of 5.4.
A little more context will show how much better he has been protecting Eli Manning's blind side this season. In 2011, Beatty allowed 24 QB hurries, three QB hits and four sacks in only 10 games played (he had his season cut short due to a detached retina injury). So far this season, in three less games, he has allowed only 10 QB hurries, no QB hits and only one sack.
With Beatty firmly in his prime at the age of 27, there is no reason to think he can't continue his strong play through the Giants' final nine games.
