If the NFL playoffs were today – AFC edition

Just two weeks remain in the 2013 regular season, and the field of contenders is getting smaller, but there is still so much to be fought or and decided amongst the nine teams left in AFC playoff contention.

Three division titles are up for grabs still, only the Indianapolis Colts have clinched theirs. After last weekends play the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs are tied up in the West at 11-3, but the Broncos have a tiebreaking edge having swept the Chiefs. In the East New England need just one more win as they are two games ahead of Miami, and in the North, Cincinnati hold a one game lead over the in form team Baltimore, the two meet on the final day of the season.

The wild card race is getting a bit clearer now. Whoever loses out in the West has got the number five seed. Number six is more than likely going to either the Ravens or Dolphins, but waiting for any slip up are San Diego and long shot Pittsburgh.

Below are the current seeding’s with the games left for each of the teams.

1. DENVER 11-3
at Houston, at Oakland

2. NEW ENGLAND 10-4
at Baltimore, v Buffalo

3. CINCINNATI 9-5
