AFC Update

December 22, 2013

Three teams clinched divisional titles in the AFC on Sunday and all four divisional winners scored impressive victories.

One playoff spot and seeding will be determined next week.

The Denver Broncos, with almost certain NFL MVP Peyton Manning throwing four touchdown passes to eclipse Tom Brady’s single season record, rolled past the hapless (2-13) Houston Texans. That  win combined with the Colts’ win at Kansas City vs the Chiefs, clinched a third straight AFC West crown for the Broncos.

The Broncos will be the AFC one seed for the second straight season if they win at Oakland or if the Buffalo Bills upset the New England Patriots next week.

The AFC East winners, the Patriots, forced the one seed “issue” to the final week by winning at Baltimore. That win after Cincinnati’s earlier rout of the Minnesota Vikings, clinched the Bengals’ first divisional title since 2009.

The Indianapolis Colts, who had already clinched the AFC South, won at Kansas City but will need not only to win next week but get help to move up in the AFC seeding.
