They rank in order 24/70, 48/70, 50/70 of all NFL guards getting at least 25% of team snaps.
I find it's hard to justify Ben Jones grades.

His overall grade is -2.8.
Based on Football Outsiders, his snap counts were as followed:
- 38 offensive snaps in week 2
- 29 in week 3
- 47 in week 4

Now, in week 4, PFF gave him a grade of -5.4 (on 47 snaps).

"Making life as easy as they could for quarterback Matt Schaub (+2.8), the Texans’ offensive line was nearly flawless in pass protection. Only right guard Ben Jones (-5.4) finished the game with a negative grade and he was also the only Houston lineman to allow any pressure (one hit and two hurries)."

That means he has to grade out at 8.2 in week 2 and 3 (on 67 snaps) to bring his score up to -2.8

That means he would have stood out such that PFF would have named him in a very positive ways in those two weeks, but they didn't.
