Bills vs. Eagles: King Dunlap To Replace Jason Peters

As Matt pointed out yesterday, the Philadelphia Eagles are preparing for this week's game against the Buffalo Bills with changes forthcoming along their offensive line. The biggest news on that front is the absence of Jason Peters at left tackle - a man that Bills fans will obviously be familiar with.

Jason Brewer of BleedingGreenNation.com points out that while losing Peters is a blow, it's not as big a deal as it would be if the team didn't start Michael Vick at quarterback.

"The important thing to keep in mind here is that Vick is a lefty, so Peters isn't watching the blind side like he always has," notes Brewer. "That said, he's had a really good year both in pass protection, and especially in the run game. Clearly he's a major loss, but it's not quite as panic inducing as it usually would be if you lost your left tackle."

King Dunlap, a seventh-round draft pick out of Auburn in 2008, will replace Peters in the starting lineup. He's got five career starts under his belt, most of them coming at right tackle last season.

"The Eagles' surest way to get yards - which is to hand off to LeSean McCoy and have him run left behind Peters - will obviously not be so sure this week," concludes Brewer.
