After the Giants cut Rich Seubert and Shaun O'Hara in the offseason, there were many people concerned with how the offensive line would fare.
Although they have had some good performances, last week was not one of them. They played terribly, in both the pass and the run.
Giants' running backs Ahmad Bradshaw and Danny Ware combined rush for 61 yards on 21 carries for a measly 2.9 yards per carry. That's not going to cut it. The O-Line had a lot of trouble creating lanes for them to run through.
Every time they received the hand off from quarterback Eli Manning, they were met at the line by a sea of Seahawk defenders. They had no chance on this day.
In the pass, they let Eli Manning get sacked three times, was hit two more times. One of these sacks induced a fumble. Manning, when given time in the pocket, can be one of the best quarterbacks in the league. When he is hurried or hit, he can be one of the worst decision makers in the league.
Luckily for the O-line they are about to face the 29th ranked rush defense in the NFL and the 26th ranked pass defense in the league. That means that they need to take advantage of areas in which the Bills have struggled through five games.
Either way you look at it the offensive line will play a role in determining the outcome of the game.
