Andrew Whitworth and Rodger Saffold have helped make the Los Angeles Rams an overwhelming pick as the team with the NFL’s best offensive line in voting by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press.

The Rams got eight first-place votes and finished with a total of 92 of a possible 100 points in balloting released Friday.

The New Orleans Saints finished second with 76 points, followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers with 73. Then there was a big drop-off, with the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs tied for fourth with 47.
