The Daily News points out a common thread in one of the NFL's weekly awards:

• Jason Pierre-Paul just received his after a five-tackle, two-sack Christmas Eve against the Jets.

• Jason Babin earned his with four sacks on Mark Sanchez.

• Von Miller only had one-and-a-half sacks of Sanchez, but racked up nine tackles.

• Andre Carter took down Sanchez 4.5 times for his award—nearly half his season total.


It doesn't matter what position you play, or what conference you're in, or even whether you're a particularly great defensive football player: the Jets' offensive line is the path to stardom and laurels.
