10 best sack-less streaks at every O-line position


Naturally, the week that Green Bay guard Josh Sitton gets some attention for his streak of not giving up a sack—he gets beaten for a sack. You couldn’t have scripted it.

Regardless, it did get us thinking: How remarkable was Sitton’s achievement? On the surface, it was incredible, but would some more detailed numbers back it up?

This new feature goes beyond the number of games an offensive lineman has played without giving up a sack, to look at how many snaps in pass protection he has participated in without surrendering one.

We’ve broken this down into five positional groups (LT, LG, RG, RT, and C) to see what the all-time PFF records are (since the start of the 2007 season), and view the best streaks, currently. It’s important to note that we’re only including snaps a player spent at a single position. 

Below, you’ll find the top three current sack-less streaks for each offensive line position. To view the best 10 current streaks, as well as the 10 best all-time streaks at that position, click the link at the bottom of each list.
