In the third Position Battle, the star left guard of the Buffalo Bills Andy Levitre (Photoed above) takes on emerging star Cleveland Browns  middle linebacker D’Qwell Jackson (photoed below).

D’Qwell Jackson has three sacks so far which ranks him third in the NFL behind defensive tackle Dwan Edwards and linebacker Clay Matthews. Also to the three sacks he has returned an interception for a touchdown against Michael Vick and has another interception on Andy Dalton. He has been a tacking machine ever since coming into the league as well, where he plays more than 13 games a year, he has had over 95 tackles each and every year. I think he has found a niche under as a middle linebacker under defensive coordinator and former Bills head coach Dick Jauron.

In contrast Andy Levitre and the entire Buffalo Bills offensive line has not give up a sack yet, and they also have been the focal point in why running back C.J. Spiller leads the league in rushing yards with 292. Andy Levitre is the epitome of what an unsung hero is on a pro football team, brings his lunch pal in day in and day out, never gets credit for his work, especially after last year I thought he should have made the Pro Bowl.

Here is the tale of the tape for these two guys:
