As the graph from NFL.com shows, the Denver Broncos would be the second seed in the AFC Playoff race if the season ended today.
This week, however, everything could change.
The Broncos, who played on Thursday Night Football two days ago, have played one more game than all of the other AFC teams in playoff contention. With 10 wins, the Broncos are the No. 2 seed by default.
On Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens (9-3) will take on the Washington Redskins (6-6), who have played better than their win-loss record would suggest. On Monday, the New England Patriots (9-3) could leapfrog the Broncos with a win over the Houston Texans (11-1).
Denver’s best bet to secure the No. 2 seed would come with a Texans victory on Monday and a Broncos win over Baltimore in Week 15. Stay tuned…
