AFC Playoff Picture

Now with only 2 weeks left in the regular season, I thought I'd break down the AFC playoff picture. There are still 9 teams alive and only 6 spots, so in the next 2 weeks 3 teams will be going home unhappy. There are only 3 teams that have locked up a playoff berth, so the bottom 6 teams will fight for the last 3 spots. No one has locked up home field advantage, so there's a lot to play for in the last 2 weeks for all 9 teams fighting for a playoff spot or seed. Now let's break down the all 9 teams and there situations.
