The Titans have clinched home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs with today’s win over the Steelers, but not much else has changed in the AFC playoff picture with the results of today’s early games.
Ignoring the AFC East for a moment, the playoff picture breaks down like this. The Titans (home-field advantage), Steelers (first-round bye) and Colts (wild card) are in. The Ravens control their own destiny. Nothing changed for the Chargers after their 41-24 win over the Bucs; they couldn’t clinch today and can be eliminated only with a Broncos win over the Bills.
Back in the AFC East, there were no clinching scenarios for the Dolphins, Patriots or Jets today. Their tie-breaking scenarios will all come down to Week 17.
