Week 14 is fully in the books after New England's 30-23 win over Baltimore Monday. Here's where the playoff picture currently stands with just three weeks left in the regular season.
AFC #1 seed: New England Patriots (11-2)
The Pats control their own destiny in claiming homefield advantage in the AFC if they can win out against Denver, the Jets and Miami.
AFC #2 seed: Kansas City Chiefs (10-3)
The Chiefs gave themselves a big tiebreaker in the AFC West with their second win of the season over Oakland on Thursday.
The primetime crowd at Arrowhead on Thursday certainly showed how dangerous a home-field advantage could be in Kansas City in January if they hold on to this spot.
AFC #3 seed: Pittsburgh Steelers (8-5)
Pittsburgh's win over Buffalo Sunday combined with Baltimore's Monday night loss to New England puts the Steelers in sole position of the AFC North lead.
AFC #4 seed: Houston Texans (7-6)
Houston's Week 4 win over Tennessee gives them the current tiebreaker atop the AFC South. Before those teams meet again in Week 17, the Texans should catch a break with home matchups vs. Jacksonville and Cincinnati.
AFC #5 seed: Oakland Raiders (10-3)
What a difference a week makes. The Raiders were holding on to home-field advantage in the AFC after Week 13 concluded. Following their loss to the Chiefs, they're now slated for a road matchup on wild-card weekend.
AFC #6 seed: Denver Broncos (8-5)
The Broncos didn't help themselves with a 13-10 road loss to Tennessee on Sunday, but they still hold a slight tiebreak over Miami for the second wild-card spot thanks to a better winning percentage in common games.
AFC #7 seed: Miami Dolphins (8-5)
They won a tough game over Arizona in the final seconds to stay in the playoff hunt, but they'll need to finish the season without starting QB Ryan Tannehill, who suffered a potentially serious knee injury.
AFC #8 seed: Baltimore Ravens (7-6)
A Monday night loss to New England puts Baltimore a game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North and on the outside of the wild-card picture as well.
NFC #1 seed: Dallas Cowboys (11-2)
Only one team has been able to solve the Cowboys this season and now they've done it twice. The Giants' win over Dallas doesn't change the Cowboys' seed in the conference or division, though.
NFC #2 seed: Detroit Lions (9-4)
A Lions comeback win over Chicago and a rout by their NFC North rival Green Bay Packers over Seattle now has the Lions looking at a potential first-round bye.
NFC #3 seed: Seattle Seahawks (8-4-1)
A week after destroying Cam Newton and the Panthers, the Seahawks found themselves on the other end of a lopsided affair in Green Bay.
NFC #4 seed: Atlanta Falcons (8-5)
The Falcons won by a healthy margin over the Rams in a 42-14 beating Sunday. Their lead in the NFC South isn't quite so massive, holding a slight advantage in winning percentage vs. common opponents over the fellow 8-5 Bucs.
NFC #5 seed: New York Giants (9-4)
New York's second win of the year over the Cowboys didn't do much for its hopes of catching them in the NFC East, but it did give the Giants a nice one-game cushion in the race for the top NFC wild-card spot.
NFC #6 seed: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-5)
The Bucs keep rolling, snagging their fifth straight win with a 16-11 victory against the Saints. They'll face a huge obstacle in the way of a sixth when they take on Dallas next Sunday night.
NFC #7 seed: Washington Redskins (7-5-1)
Washington stayed in the mix with a gritty win over the Eagles. A little help from hated division rival Dallas over the Bucs could vault them back into the final wild-card position if they can handle Carolina.
NFC #8 seed: Minnesota Vikings (7-6)
They hold a tiebreaker over fellow 7-6 rival Green Bay in the wild-card race, but both squads are still on the outside looking in when it comes to both that and the NFC North lead.
