Currently, here's the AFC side of the house through Week 14:
1. Denver (11-2)
2. New England (10-3)
3. Cincinnati (9-4)
4. Indianapolis (8-5)
5. Kansas City (10-3)
6. Baltimore (7-6)
San Diego @ Denver - Denver clinches the AFC West with a win plus a Kansas City loss. They also will grab a first-round bye with a Bengals' loss or tie in addition to the aforementioned scenario. Can't let that happen, now can we? As much as I hate to root for a divisional rival...GO BOLTS.
New England @ Miami - A win or a tie for the Patriots here gives them the AFC East title. They can still clinch a playoff spot if they lose, though, just as long as Baltimore loses as well. If Denver loses to San Diego, this will give Tom Brady and Company temporary control of the 1-seed. Don't like that idea, personally. GO DOLPHINS.
Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh - A Bengals' win here, combined with a Baltimore loss/tie; or a tie plus a Ravens' loss hands them the AFC North crown. They can still clinch a spot in the playoffs, though, with a win plus a Dolphins' loss or tie; or a tie plus a Miami loss. (They could legitimately jump the Patriots for control of the #2 seed with a win, as they beat New England in Week 5.) GO STEELERS.
Houston @ Indianapolis - The Colts are pretty much guaranteed no worse than the 4th seed at this point, now that they've clinched the AFC South. A win at home won't mean much, as they can't leapfrog the Bengals this week. (Cincy has the tiebreaker with their 42-28 win last week.) I still like the Chiefs' chances at Indy compared to Cincy, though, for a playoff opponent in the opening round if that's where the chips wind up falling. GO TEXANS.
Kansas City @ Oakland - Not much to say here. Another win will put the Chiefs within striking distance of grabbing the AFC West crown, but Denver holds the tiebreaker in spite of identical 11-3 records. Still, a win here gives KC a playoff spot. GO CHIEFS!!!
Baltimore @ Detroit - In order to keep a hold of the #6 seed, Baltimore needs a win here...and will need to win their final two games. A win here + a NE loss + a Bengals loss means the AFC final pecking order won't be established for another week. GO RAVENS.
