A.F.C. Update

December 12, 2017

Last night’s (6-7) Miami win which snapped New England’s 14 game road win skein and 8 game such streak this season, likely will not matter in the seeding race.

The winner of this week’s tilt at Pittsburgh, between the (11-2) Steelers, who have high wired 3 straight win/no covers, the latest (39-38) vs the still likely in the ‘offs (7-6) Baltimore Ravens, in which Pitts quarterback Ben Roethlisberger became the first NFL quarterback to thrice throw for over 500 yards in a game, and (10-3) New England (Patriots) will lead the one seed race and very likely win it.

Jacksonville (Jaguars) is (9-4) a game ahead of the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South race. If “Jax” wins out (they host Houston, visit improving San Francisco before a trip to Tennessee for a game that might decide the AFC South if not have more ‘offs implications. Then again that tilt might mean little).

On Saturday night, NFL Network beams us likely the game that will decide the AFC West as the (7-6) now L.A. Chargers, winners of 7 of their last 9 games visit Kansas City (Chiefs), a team that had lost 6 of 7 games before a (26-15) home win vs now (7-6) Oakland with their “good luck” and once team announcer, Kevin “Mout” Harlan presiding.

The Titans did win the earlier game at Jacksonville so if they win the season finale vs “Jax” and tie in the standings, the AFC South would go to them.

If K.C. prevails Saturday night, they would have a very likely insurmountable one game and a fraction lead over the Chargers, having won the earlier tilt.


Now Ben and the Steelers can all but wrap up the AFC one seed with a win vs New England on Sunday. They can not clinch the one seed even with a victory, unless Jacksonville loses.

Earlier today, doing the “kid around” news that has marked WFAN even as WNBC with Mike Breen, Chris Lopresti ERRED saying Pittsburgh could clinch the AFC one seed, with a victory.
