Even though we've been living this season for nearly three months now, I still can't believe that I'm writing about the Kansas City Chiefs playoff-clinching scenarios in November. What a season.

So, here we go. The scenarios that would clinch the Chiefs a playoff spot:

1) KC win + SD loss or tie + TEN loss or tie + NYJ loss + BAL loss OR

2) KC win + SD loss or tie + TEN loss or tie + MIA loss + NE loss OR

3) KC win + SD loss or tie + TEN loss or tie + NYJ/MIA tie OR

4) KC win + SD loss or tie + TEN loss or tie + BAL/PIT tie OR

5) KC win + SD loss or tie + MIA loss + NE loss + BAL/PIT tie OR

6) KC win + SD loss or tie + MIA/NYJ tie + BAL/PIT tie OR

7) KC win + TEN loss or tie + MIA/NYJ tie + BAL/PIT tie

Here is the NFL schedule.

The notable games for the Chiefs this week are: Titans-Colts, Ravens-Steelers, Dolphins-Jets, Bengals-Chargers, Patriots-Texans.

The Broncos are also one of three teams along with the Chiefs who can clinch a playoff spot this weekend (the Seahawks being the third). Here are the Broncos playoff scenarios:

1) DEN win + SD loss or tie + TEN loss or tie + NYJ loss + BAL loss OR

2) DEN win + SD loss or tie + TEN loss or tie + BAL/PIT tie OR

3) DEN win + SD loss or tie + TEN loss or tie + MIA/NYJ tie OR

4) DEN win + SD loss or tie + BAL/PIT tie + MIA/NYJ tie OR

5) DEN win + TEN loss or tie + BAL/PIT tie + MIA/NYJ tie
