Which NFL teams are positioned to make the playoffs after Week 14? How are the seeds looking for the current division leaders and wild-card hopefuls?
Based on the standings and taking into account tiebreakers, here are how things look in the AFC and NFC.
NFL playoff picture
No. 1 seed — Steelers (11-2): Champions, AFC North. Pittsburgh will stay ahead of New England before the teams' Week 15 showdown after rallying to beat Baltimore on Sunday night, which also clinched another division title for the Steelers. What's left: vs. NE, at HOU, vs. CLE
No. 2 seed — Patriots (10-3): First place, AFC East. New England failed keep pace with Pittsburgh, losing in Miami on Monday night. The Patriots will stay here after Week 14 but can still jump to No. 1 and be in cruise control with a win over the Steelers. What's left: at PIT, vs. BUF, vs. NYJ
No. 3 seed — Jaguars (9-4): First place, AFC South. Jacksonville jumped back up to No. 3 with a win over Seattle plus a Tennessee loss at Arizona. What's left: vs. HOU, at SF, at TEN
No. 4 seed — Chiefs (7-6): First place, AFC West. Kansas City will stay right here after beating Oakland. The Chiefs beat the Chargers earlier in the season and face them again next week. What's left: vs. LAC, vs. MIA, at DEN
No. 5 seed — Titans (8-5): First place, AFC South. Tennessee got upended in Arizona, losing its division lead and getting a little too close to the back-end AFC wild-card pack. What's left: at SF, vs. LAR, vs. JAX
No. 6 seed — Bills (7-6): Second place, AFC East. Buffalo beat Indianapolis in the snow in overtime, and then got back here when Baltimore lost to Pittsburgh. What's left: vs. MiA, at NE, at MIA
Who's right behind: 7. Ravens (7-6), 8. Chargers (7-6), 9. Raiders (6-7). 10. Dolphins (6-7) Baltimore has a favorable schedule and would be in should it win out. Los Angeles kept pace with Kansas City in the West before the teams play each other in Week 15. Oakland's horrible performance in Kansas City has it on the brink of falling out. At least it has a win over Miami.
Who's barely alive: 11. Jets (5-8), 12. Bengals (5-8), 13. Texans (4-9). Cincinnati and Houston started it by losing to NFC foes at home, and New York was upended late by Denver.
Who's out: 14. Broncos (4-9), 15. Colts (3-10), 16. Browns (0-13). Indianapolis and Denver join Cleveland in no longer being able to get enough wins for an AFC wild-card berth.
No. 1 seed — Eagles (11-2): Champions, NFC East. Philadelphia is back on top for home-field advantage by a full game thanks to the Minnesota loss and its victory over No. 3 Los Angeles. The Eagles also won the division, as the Cowboys can no longer catch them. What's left: at NYG, vs. OAK, vs. DAL
No. 2 seed — Vikings (10-3): First place, NFC North. Minnesota's loss at Carolina was costly to drop it from No. 1. The Vikings will stay here no matter what the Rams do, as they beat them earlier in the season. What's left: vs. CIN, at GB, vs. CHI
No. 3 seed — Rams (9-4): First place, NFC West. The loss to the Eagles was tough, but the Rams stay here between the Vikings, to whom they loss, and the Saints, whom they beat. What's left: at SEA, at TEN, vs. SF
No. 4 seed — Saints (9-4): First place, NFC South. New Orleans lost a tough one in Atlanta to open Week 14 on Thursday night to guarantee getting stuck here at the end of the week. What's left: vs. NYJ, vs. ATL, at TB
No. 5 seed — Panthers (9-4): Second place, NFC South. Carolina's win over Minnesota allowed it to jump Seattle. The Panthers stay here thanks to the Seahawks' loss to the Jaguars. What's left: vs. GB, vs. TB, at ATL
No. 6 seed — Falcons (8-5): Second place, NFC South. Atlanta moved back into position with its win at New Orleans coupled with Seattle's loss at Jacksonville. What's left: at TB, at WAS, vs. NO
Who's right behind: 7. Seahawks (8-5), 8. Lions (7-6), 9. Packers (7-6), 10. Cowboys (7-6). Seattle lost to fall from No. 5. It will have its eyes on the division when it tries to sweep Los Angeles in Week 15. Detroit, Green Bay and Dallas all won, too, to keep their slim hopes alive.
Who's barely alive: 11. Cardinals (6-7). Arizona upset AFC foe Tennessee to stay barely alive in the NFC.
Who's out: 12. Redskins (5-8), 13. Buccaneers (4-9), 14. Bears (4-9), 15. 49ers (3-10), 16. Giants (2-11). Tampa Bay joined the club with the loss to Detroit. Washington followed suit in the late window. Chicago and San Francisco keep playing well to finish the season strong. New York keeps tanking, even post-Ben McAdoo.
