The Green Bay Packers keep absorbing the hits on the offensive line.
As far as the linemen are concerned, better that they take the blows than quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Front fives don’t usually draw much attention. The Packers’ highlight reel is typically filled with pinpoint passes from Rodgers to receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, and pinball runs by Eddie Lacy.
It’s difficult to overlook how the Packers’ front has performed this season, especially with injuries nagging the line.
“The five that play together practice together each and every week give you the chance to be the most cohesive group,” coach Mike McCarthy said.
He pointed to a combination of talent, ability and continuity on the practice field as keys to success.
They haven’t all been full participants at practice, though, for about six weeks.
