Shocking: The Minnesota Vikings' offensive line is not ranked dead last by Pro Football Focus.

Not shocking: Only one team's offensive line is ranked lower.

Here's what Pro Football Focus had to say about Minnesota's line.

"It’s no secret that the Vikings’ offensive line has struggled badly, and without the play of Joe Berger in the middle, it would probably be at the bottom of this list. Berger has been good, if not as good as a year ago, and is PFF’s sixth-ranked center with a grade of 84.5; the next-highest grade on the line, however, is 72.3 from Alex Boone, and the current four-starters outside of Berger average a PFF grade of 51.5. T.J. Clemmings in particular has been a disaster at tackle, surrendering 24 total pressures and owning one of the worst grades we have ever given a tackle over the past 10 seasons of grading."

It doesn't help that Minnesota has lost Jake Long, Andre Smith, Matt Kalil and Mike Harris to injuries while Phil Loadholt retired and John Sullivan was released.

It's still unclear who the Vikings will start at three positions this Sunday against Arizona. There was talk of Boone moving from left guard to left tackle, and nobody knows who will start at left and right tackle. The main candidates to do so are T.J. Clemmings and Jeremiah Sirles.

It must be really bad in San Diego. The Chargers are the only team with a lower-ranked line.
