The AFC Notebook

A weekly look at the news, notes and quick hits from around the AFC.

If the AFC playoff picture stays the same, fans can expect some fireworks in the divisional round. If the Jets upset Kansas City (although most wouldn't call that an upset and the Jets will probably be slight favorites in Vegas) and the Ravens avenge last year's playoff defeat on the road against the depleted Colts, that would make for two intriguing divisional round games. New York at New England and Baltimore at Pittsburgh- that right there would be must see TV!

The Bengals scored 34 points on Sunday, the most they've scored in any game this season without the services of Chad Ochocinco or Terrell Owens. Is this a precursor of things to come? Perhaps, although Owens had a Pro Bowl caliber year. It is Ochocinco's act that is wearing thin and Owens, despite being in great physical shape, is aging and might be axed as part of Cinci's rebuilding effort. Next season would be Ochocinco's sixteenth season in the NFL.

Some good local news for fans of the green and white… A Jets fan that was seriously injured last year after the AFC Championship Game was flown out by the Jets for the Steelers game a little over a week ago. Robert Formola and his father were flown out by the Jets and were given two first row endzone seats. The Formolas also had a chance to meet Jets head coach Rex Ryan and owner Woody Johnson before the before the game.

According to CBS Sports, Baltimore Ravens Sergio Kindle was arrested for drunken driving Saturday morning. Coach John Harbaugh claimed the former star Longhorns linebacker was remorseful and aware that he had made a mistake. "We have met with Sergio and this is not something we wanted to happen," Harbaugh said. "He's remorseful and made a mistake."
