And their efforts have been rewarded in the form of recognition from Pro Football Focus, who earned the top run blocking grade of 80.3 thanks in large part to center Frank Ragnow and left tackle Taylor Decker. That’s good for tops in the NFL.

Additionally, OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai is currently ranked 19th out of 79 guards with a 68.5 run block rating, while rookie Jonah Jackson comes in at 28th.

It’s also worth mentioning that their 73.5 graded pass protection is good for 12th in the NFL, not half bad!

The Lions will be taking on the 1-5 Atlanta Falcons this weekend, and will be looking to improve to the .500 mark for the first time in a while.
