Week 15 in the AFC was verrrryy interesting.
The Los Angeles Chargers went into Kansas City and handed Patrick Mahomes a loss.
Tom Brady may have to play during Wild Card weekend for just the third time in the Brady-Belichick era, and the sixth a final playoff spot is still up for grabs as the Baltimore Ravens could be eliminated this weekend.
Here's a look at where things stand in the AFC heading into Week 16.
AFC Playoff Standings:
1. Kansas City Chiefs (11-3, 4-1)
The Chiefs have already clinched a playoff berth, but their Thursday night loss to the Chargers made things much more interesting in the AFC West.
If they win out, the Chiefs will still claim the AFC West and the No. 1 seed. A loss over the next two weeks, however, could shift their seeding around.
Remaining Games: @Seahawks (8-6), Raiders (3-11)
2. Houston Texans (10-4, 3-2)
The Texans moved up in the standings thanks to the New England Patriots losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Deshaun Watson closing out a win against the New York Jets.
The Texans could easily finish 12-4 after their remaining two matchups.
Remaining Games: @Eagles (7-7), Jacksonville (4-10)
3. New England Patriots (9-5, 3-1)
The Patriots' loss to the Steelers Sunday has put them in a sticky situation.
A first-round bye is potentially in jeopardy, something Tom Brady and Bill Belichick aren't used to, and a road game in the second-round seems plausible. Their remaining games, however, could easily bounce them back from their two-game losing streak.
Remaining Games: Buffalo (5-9), Jets (4-10)
4. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-5-1, 3-1-1)
A win Sunday over the Patriots didn't move the Steelers any in playoff seeding, but did keep them half a game up of the Ravens for the AFC North.
It will be a race to the finish line for Ben Roethlisberger and co. as the AFC is anything but steady and they face Drew Brees and the Saints in Week 16.
Remaining Games: @Saints (12-2), Bengals (6-8)
5. Los Angeles Chargers (11-3, 3-2)
The Chargers secured a spot in the playoffs with their 29-28 win over the Chiefs in unexpected fashion.
They could also ruin the Ravens' season Saturday as a win will knock them out of the playoffs for the fourth year in a row.
Remaining Games: Ravens (8-6), @Denver (6-8)
6. Baltimore Ravens (8-6, 2-3)
There are so many scenarios for the Ravens heading into Saturday's game against the Chargers. One of those includes them taking over the AFC North, and the other involves missing the postseason for the fourth year in a row.
If the Ravens win Sunday and the Steelers lose to the Saints, they will lead the AFC North. But if the Ravens lose and the Steelers, Colts and Titans all win the Ravens head back to Baltimore with nothing to show for their 2018 season.
Not only do the Ravens have to travel across the country on a shorter week, but it will be the first time Lamar Jackson faces a top-10 defense. It's all in their hands.
Remaining Games: @Chargers (11-3), Browns (6-7-1)
In The Hunt:
7. Indianapolis Colts (8-6, 3-2)
The Colts slowed down the Dallas Cowboys hype train in their shutout win Sunday.
The Colts will need some help to make it to the playoffs and a Ravens loss on Sunday could do just that.
Remaining Games: Giants (5-9), @Tennessee (8-6)
8. Tennessee Titans (8-6, 3-2)
A shutout win over the New York Giants kept the Titans' playoff hopes alive.
The Colts have the advantage over the Titans at the moment based on their head-to-head record, but that could all change in Week 17 when the two faceoff against one another.
Remaining Games: Redskins (7-7), Colts (8-6)
9. Miami Dolphins (7-7, 4-1)
Miami has been able to stay in the mix, but their 41-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday could have spelled the end.
They now must win out and need a lot of help from other teams to see January football.
Remaining Games: Jacksonville (4-10), @Bills (5-9)
10. Cleveland Browns (6-7-1, 2-1-1)
The Browns need somewhat of a miracle to make the playoffs, but their season certainly hasn't been boring.
In order to make it to the postseason, the Browns have to win out AND the Titans and Colts both have to lose Week 16 AND the Titans and Colts have to tie in their Week 17 matchup.
Eliminated: Oakland Raiders (3-11), New York Jets (4-10), Jacksonville Jaguars (4-10), Buffalo Bills (5-9), Cincinnati Bengals (6-8, and the Denver Broncos (6-8).
