As if Jason Kelce couldn’t get any more legendary:
Kelce just wrapped up another full season of starts which brings his consecutive starts streak to 122 games. He trails only Jake Matthews and Ndamukong Suh.
Despite missing four games, Lane Johnson’s impact was felt:
He’s the only OT to not allow a sack in over 400 pass blocking snaps:

A case could be made that Darius Slay deserved a nod, but that does not discount the incredible season he had himself.
The two pillars of the Eagles offensive line helped spearhead a lethal rushing effort that ranked as the NFL’s most dominant rushing unit at the end of the regular season, shattering a franchise record for most rushing yards in a single season in the process. The team averaged 159.7 yards per game on the ground.
It’s the fourth time that Kelce has earned the nod and the first time for Johnson as a second-teamer, he has one first-team accolade to his name. It’s warming to see these two future Hall of Famers get the respect they deserve.
Congratulations to Jason and Lane!
