Lions leaning on solid offensive line this season

The Detroit Lions have a collection of talent on offense.

With an offensive line that appears to be a solid unit, Detroit should have time to throw and room to run.

All five starters are back up front from last year. That seems to be good news for the franchise. Matthew Stafford was sacked just 23 times last season, a low number considering he attempted 634 passes to Calvin Johnson and other targets. Reggie Bush ran for more than 1,000 yards for the second time in his career and Joique Bell had 650 yards rushing a year ago.

Center Dominic Raiola and guard Rob Sims, with a combined 21 years of NFL experience, lead the Lions' offensive line.
