The top offensive lines in Scouts Inc.'s updated postseason rankings had a chance to rest this 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 Cowboys remain atop the rankings after a bye week, and they will use their speed off the edge to pressure Giants QB Eli Manning and their active inside linebackers to fill holes and make tackles against the run game. ILB Bradie James will continue to make plays and line up his defense correctly.
