Ryan Ramczyk is a stud

The Khalil Mack-led Chicago Bears defensive front is one of the best in the league.

However, against New Orleans, they were able to get to Bridgewater just one time. It wasn’t Bridgewater who numerous times escaped the pressure but Ryan Ramczyk and the offensive line that kept them out.

It was just a week ago that Sports Illustrated’s Bob Rose penned a column titled “Ryan Ramczyk may be the Saints true offensive MVP.” He may not be wrong either as the 6-foot-6, 315-pound tackle has been phenomenal to start the season.

Rose praised Ramczyk who was the Saints’ first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

"“Ryan Ramczyk has been the most consistent player on this elite New Orleans line though, a group that paves the way for a balanced attack. Ramczyk has not only kept his quarterback upright but has set the edge beautifully for Kamara and the running game.”"

One example of Ramczyk’s dominance was in Week 1, where he and Terron Armstead teamed up to keep J.J. Watt without a single tackle, one of the few times that’s happened throughout his career.

Against Chicago, they limited Mack to just eight tackles which were, in part, due to the Saints’ run-heavy gameplay. Ramczyk proved that he’s both worth the money and able to keep the NFL’s best outside of the pocket.
