This is a source degenerated differential pair. The degeneration resistor value depends on the Rds.on of the FETs. Basically used to decrease gain and increase linearity of the diff.pair.
For source degeneration a good manual: Behzad Razavi - Design of analog CMOS integrated circuits, see single ended amplifiers
