AFC PLAYOFF PICTURE IS CROWDED

With three weeks remaining in the regular season, 14 of 16 AFC clubs are in the NFL's playoff picture. No AFC team has clinched a postseason berth...

 but the Oakland Raiders can do so this Sunday when they travel to Miami.  An Oakland win coupled with a Denver tie, or a Denver loss and San Diego loss or tie clinches a playoff berth for the Raiders.

"What matters is that we keep chopping wood and carrying water and doing what we do, which is focusing on the next game," says Raiders head coach BILL CALLAHAN

Following are records of AFC playoff contenders, their remaining games and their wins and losses against other AFC playoff hopefuls:
