Carr gets a SLIGHT advantage because he has been more consistent and shows better leadership skills, IMO.
The Lions Oline has clearly been better at pass blocking, when was the last time the Olineman blocked well enough for a 100 yd. rusher. You also are referring to the line over the past couple years, but Texans signed Todd Wade, moved a tackle (Pitts I think) back to his natural guard position, and a young tackle (Seth Wand) has looked impressive in preseason. Call it a hunch, but I don't think this Oline will give up 76 sacks this year, and they will block for a 1200+ yd runner.
