Andrew Thomas, Matt Peart played well against Washington
As bad as the New York Giants’ offensive line has been this season, they actually played pretty well against the Washington Football Team this past Sunday afternoon.
In particular, Giants’ rookie left tackle Andrew Thomas did a good job run blocking, according to Pro Football Focus., who gave him a grade of 79.3. It was also pointed out that this is his second straight game of having a run grade over 70.
With Thomas being benched for a portion of the game, fellow rookie Matt Peart also played left tackle and actually performed better than him with an overall grade of 89.7. This was the highest grade for any Giants’ offensive lineman for the game, according to PFF.
Peart’s run blocking grade was a 93.4 and he also gave up only one pass pressure. While this is a small sample, he outperformed Thomas in week six.
Overall, the Giants offensive line did a very good job against a Washington front-seven that has been very stout this season. Of course there is still plenty of work to be done for this group, they are making progress. There next test will be this Thursday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
When it comes to the defensive side of the ball, Dalvin Tomlinson (83.9) and Leonard Williams (75.7) received the highest grades.
