Last season, where did the Cardinals’ offensive line rank in comparison to other teams in the NFL?

How Cardinals’ Offensive Line Ranked Across NFL Last Season
Fact Checked by Washington Erick

During the 2022-23 NFL regular season, the Arizona Cardinals, led by former coach Kliff Kingsbury, were among the few NFL franchises that faced challenges and struggles.

The club’s performance took a sharp downturn from 11-6 to 4-13, with a significant 192-point decrease in point differential from +83 to -109, indicating clear regression on Arizona betting apps.

One approach is to assess Arizona’s offensive line performance in comparison to other teams in the league. Pro Football Focus ranked Arizona’s unit as 24th among all teams.

Yengols.com utilized Pro-Football-Reference.com to analyze the performance of the Cardinals’ offensive line in comparison to other NFL teams. They collected information on the total number of sacks allowed by each team, assigning points based on rankings from the team with the fewest sacks to the team with the most. Additionally, they determined the approximate value of each offensive line unit (using data from the 10 players with the highest number of games played), and awarded points in a similar fashion.

We ranked NFL offensive line units from 1st to 32nd based on the value calculated by dividing the cap hit from Spotrac.com for the 2022-23 season among the 10 offensive line members, and then further dividing it by the total points scored by each team.

I am curious about the Cardinals’ performance this season under new coach Jonathan Gannon. According to BetMGM Sportsbook Arizona, the team’s odds of reaching the Super Bowl are +8000.

23 Baltimore Ravens 35$31,529,483$710,443

In the 2022-23 NFL season, the Cardinals offensive line is ranked as one of the worst in the league.

In the previous season, the Cardinals were sixth in the league with a cost of $2,081,361 per point, sandwiched between the New York Jets ($2,316,809) and Washington Commanders ($1,993,168).

Even though they had the fourth highest point total (20) out of the bottom 10 teams in the league, the team’s trench specialists failed to live up to their $41,627,217 salary cap hit, resulting in their descent to the bottom of the standings.

The Cardinals spent $41,702,565 on their offensive line, giving them the second highest cap hit in the league behind the Jets.

Nevertheless, the residents of the Valley will not accept another season with a winning percentage below .500. The offensive line is likely to be held responsible for failing to protect Kyler Murray and ensuring the franchise’s success this upcoming fall.

Arizona sports betting websites had the Cardinals at +2500 odds to win the NFC West prior to the preseason.
