Default Prisco ranks Chargers number 1

emo to all players who have the San Diego Chargers on their schedule in 2008: Get ready for a physical 60 minutes, maybe more so than against any team in the league based on our breakdown of the NFL's 32 offensive and defensive lines.

The Chargers, who went to the AFC Championship Game last season, are again considered an elite team heading into this season. A lot of that is because they have the game's best runner in LaDainian Tomlinson, a gutsy passer in Philip Rivers and an elite tight end in Antonio Gates.

They also have the best pair of lines in the NFL.

Combined line rankings
Team OL DL Total
1. Chargers 2 1 3
2. Cowboys 1 5 6
2. Patriots 3 3 6
4. Vikings 8 2 10
5. Giants 7 4 11
6. Eagles 9 9 18
6. Seahawks 11 7 18
8. Colts 4 15 19
9. Packers 10 10 20
9. Browns 6 14 20
11. Jaguars 5 16 21
12. Titans 12 13 25
13. Saints 13 17 30
13. Texans 18 12 30
15. Ravens 25 6 31
16. Bills 15 18 33
17. Bears 26 8 34
18. Steelers 24 11 35
19. Jets 14 22 36
20. Broncos 17 24 41
21. Panthers 21 21 42
21. Cardinals 22 20 42
23. Redskins 16 27 43
23. Bucs 20 23 43
25. Bengals 19 25 44
26. Rams 28 19 47
27. Raiders 23 26 49
28. Dolphins 29 28 57
29. Lions 27 31 58
30. 49ers 30 29 59
31. Chiefs 31 30 61
32. Falcons 32 32 64
After studying the offensive and defensive lines of the league's 32 teams the past two days, we crowned the Chargers as the team with the best overall lines. The Chargers, based on our rankings, had the second-best offensive unit and the overall best defensive squad.

Those numbers, a 2 for the offensive line and a 1 for the defensive line, give San Diego a total of 3, the lowest total in the league, making them the best combo group.

The Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots tied for second with 6.

The worst line groups belong to the rebuilding Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons were 32nd in the offensive line rankings and 32nd in the defensive line rankings for a combined score of 64.

Yecch.

That's quite a mess Mike Vick and Bob Petrino left behind.

If you're looking for a 2007 non-playoff team that might be ready to make a move based on their line rankings, the Minnesota Vikings are that team. They are in the fourth spot with a combined score of 10, getting an 8 for offensive line and a 2 for the defensive line.

Now if they can only get Tarvaris Jackson to make strides. If not, those power lines will go to waste.

The Philadelphia Eagles, who are tied for sixth with the Seattle Seahawks with an 18, are another non-playoff team from last season that could make a strong push based on their line rankings. The Eagles have the ninth ranked offensive and defensive lines.

It's not hard to figure out which teams might struggle this season. The Falcons are obvious based on their score. Others at the bottom are the Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins, St. Louis Rams and Detroit Lions.

Playing those teams will be a whole bunch different than playing the Chargers.
