The Patriots' offensive line has been selected as the winner of the 2010 Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award.
Hall of Fame coach John Madden and Priloesc OTC presents the award to the league's best O-line. Patriots C Dan Koppen, ORG Dan Connolly and OL Mark LeVoir accepted the award in North Texas on Thursday.
"All season long, these guys proved they had the mental and physical toughness that enabled the Patriots' offense to put up impressive numbers on the ground and in the air," Madden said.
Two Patriots O-linemen, Logan Mankins and Matt Light, were Pro Bowlers. The unit ranked fourth in the league in sacks allowed and ninth in rushing yards per game.
