The top offensive lines in Scouts Inc.'s updated postseason rankings had a chance to rest last week and will be fresh heading into the divisional round, while the Chargers and Jaguars are looking to improve on their showings in the wild-card round.

The Patriots no doubt used their extra week of preparation to fine-tune one of the most well-oiled units in the NFL. Teams will find it hard to throw anything at this unit that will confuse it. They know what to do and simply are not likely to make any mental mistakes.
