This one is going to be pretty short, simple, and sweet.
Pittsburgh’s offensive line succeeds at the running attack as you can probably tell by looking at their stats. All things considered, it’s not too shocking as with a run-first offense, Pittsburgh does need that stability in the run block if they hope to do any damage offensively. Through their first two games, the offensive line has helped lead Pittsburgh to 483 rushing yards, an average of 241.5 yards per game.
In the pass protection is where the Panthers struggle and that was seen last week against Penn State. The Panther offensive line allowed four sacks to the Nittany Lions and a ton of pressure on Pickett even when the plays didn’t result in a sack. The Pittsburgh offensive line has plenty of holes when it does come to the pass protection and should give the Jackets defensive line a good chance to get in the backfield on Saturday for a few sacks.
