MINNEAPOLIS -- The Redskins offensive line has the catchy nickname (Hogs), a reputation second to none (what other offensive line has a nickname?), and perhaps the premier blocker in football in left tackle Jim Lachey.
But the Bills have something going for them, too. They have the NFL's No. 1 rushing offense, and one reason is their huge line. The Hogs five starters average 6 feet 3 and 290 pounds. The Bills starters average 6-4 and 294.
The Redskins gave up an NFL-low nine sacks this season, and averaged 128 rushing yards per game. Lachey, who didn't give up a sack all season, is the only first-round draft pick in the line, and he was acquired in a trade. Lachey and third-year guard Mark Schlereth are going to the Pro Bowl.
