  1. Kansas City Chiefs (14-1) – The Chiefs will be home for the playoffs. It’s hard to come up with valid reasons why they will not be the AFC’s representative in the Super Bowl.   Last Week: 1 
  2. Buffalo Bills (12-3) – The Bills seemed to thoroughly enjoy kicking the Patriots all around the field on Monday night. Hard to believe, remembering the fire power of the Jim Kelly era Bills, but Josh Allen now owns the team record for passing TDs in a season.  Last Week: 2 
  3. Green Bay Packers (12-3) – The Packers were set up to get a solid test Sunday night against the Titans. Green Bay was more than up to the challenge.  The NFC will need to be more ready for the cold weather than Tennessee was as the NFC playoffs are going thorough Lambeau Field. Last Week: 3 
  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-5) – Tampa was hardly tested by the depleted Lions. The Bucs seem to be peaking at the right time.   Last Week: 4 
  5. Seattle Seahawks (11-4) – The Seahawks stepped up and took the NFC West crown Sunday. The defense, which was a problem for much of the season, has only allowed 12.8 points per game while winning five of their last six contests.  Last Week: 5 
  6. New Orleans Saints (11-4) – The Saints may be the NFC’s most complete team when healthy. Health will be the biggest question for New Orleans going into the playoffs.  Last Week: 6 
  7. Baltimore Ravens (10-5)The Ravens have ripped off four straight wins to regain control of their playoff destiny. The league’s leading rushing attack makes Baltimore the AFC’s least desired visitor for the playoffs.  Last Week: 7 
  8. Pittsburgh Steelers (11-3) – The Steelers appeared to be headed for their fourth straight loss Sunday before staging a huge comeback. Losing the game would have been less damaging to their playoff position than it would have been to their mental state heading toward January. Last Week: 8 
  9. Miami Dolphins (10-5) A loss to the league’s best team is Miami’s only blemish over their last five games. There aren’t many quality wins on their schedule, but they get another chance this week in Buffalo.  Last Week: Unranked 
  10. Indianapolis Colts (10-5) – The Colts let a huge lead and control of their division slip away in Pittsburgh.  They may post an 11-win season and still miss the playoffs.  Avenging their now devastating week one loss to the Jags on Sunday may not be enough for a playoff berth.  Last Week: 9
