Buffalo Bills' Left Tackle Battle Will Come Down To Consistency

The Buffalo Bills' offensive line is still in flux at multiple positions. How one battle shakes out - naturally, we're talking about the left tackle battle - will determine what the rest of the line looks like.

When the Bills take the field against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday evening, incumbent Demetrius Bell - coming off of a horrible performance in Denver - will get the starting nod. He will concede first-team reps, however, to the man that will start on his right shoulder, left guard Andy Levitre. While Levitre is trying to become the team's left tackle, Chad Rinehart will take first-team reps at left guard.

Based on commentary made by Chan Gailey, the steadiest, most consistent performer of the duo will win the left tackle job - and the winner may be determined solely by this performance. Bell has been decidedly unsteady and inconsistent, but he's very obviously more athletically suited to the position than Levitre, who was able to man the blind side while in college.

Which of these two players would you rather see lock down the starting job, Bills fans?
