Coming out of their Week 5 bye sitting pretty at 4-0 and in first place in the NFC North, the Green Bay Packers have looked outstanding to open the 2020 season.

One particularly impressive area has been the play of their offensive line. In fact, advanced stats have their line as the best in the NFL.

That graph sums it up well. Not only does the Packers line have the best "pass block win rate" in the NFL, but they're also third in the league in "run block win rate.". There are really only a couple of teams that even come close to dominating in both areas the way the Packers have.

We see similar dominance with their grades on Pro Football Focus (PFF), where the Packers check in at No. 8 in run blocking grade and No. 3 in the pass blocking grade. That has helped the offense as a whole earn PFF's second-highest grade.

The unit is bolstered by David Bakhtiari, PFF's top-ranked tackle, and Corey Linsley, the top-ranked center.

O-line play may often go overlooked, but that unit has been a key to the Packers being one of the league's best teams in 2020.
