We are through Week 10 (with the exception of tonights game) and it's time to start talking playoffs. I have posted the current standings if the season ended today and will keep them up to date as we finish out the season.

I tell you now, peyton manning wouldn't see it as a revenge game as everyone thinks. Unless somehow jim irsay puts a uniform on

It's looking like there won't be much of a turnover on the AFC side for playoff teams. If Cincinnati can beat out Indy, it will be the same 6 teams as last year.

I think Denver beats the Texans and goes to the Super Bowl. They are so much better now than they were in September/October.

That's one half of a potential Manning Bowl. Eli and the Giants can certainly get there, but they need to turn it "ON" and fast...

no movement at all in the playoff seeds, but Cincinnati has a chance to take that last wildcard spot from the Steelers next week after they layed an egg in Cleveland.

Several teams have should be able to clinch playoff spots next week. I will post the scenarios soon.

Houston, New England & Denver all clinched playoffs spots, with the Pats and Broncos also clinching their division. And the Bengals are still hanging in their with Pittsburgh for that last wildcard.

yeah. the AFC is very top heavy this year. And the only reason that last wildcard spot is still up for grabs is because Roethlisberger got hurt.

I was thinking it was going to be Texans in SB but the way Peyton and Brady have been playing makes me think it's going to be very tough. I'm excited about next monday game between Texans and Pats.

updated standings. Tennesse was the only team eliminated...and no teams were able to clinch anything. Though Monday night's game will have a huge impact on the playoff seeds.

after last night, New England made a strong case for the #1 seed. Pats have an easier remaining schedule (SanFran, @Jax, Miami) than the Texans (Indy, Minn, @Indy), and now hold the tiebreaker so I think the Pats will come out on top with Home Field.

also updated with week 15 scenarios.

New England is going to get the #1 seed unless they totally F up down the stretch. I don't think Houston will beat Indy twice in 3 weeks. Like you said, they have the tiebreaker over Houston and Denver.

I'd rather see the Bengals in over the Steelers.

I would love to see the Browns sneak in. I know its a basically close to impossible, but after the Eagles, the Browns are my AFC team. I hate the Steelers and Bengals.

I thought the Texans were going to be good, but injuries happened.

They're still good. It's not uncommon for teams to look bad when they run into the buzz saw in New England.

Until they try cutting the Concrete of NY, the blade dulls then the belt breaks.

Yeah, the Giants have been the Pats' kryptonite. I'm sure they'd be happy to see someone knock them out of the playoffs.

updated for week 16 with final clinching scenarios. Miami & Pittsburgh are out so the 6 playoff teams are set. The two wildcard spots are locked as well since Indy holds the tiebreaker over Cincy for a 10-6 tie. But the top 4 spots are all in flux.
