The battle for the division title in the AFC East has come down to the final week of play. In a mixed up kind of way, only Buffalo will not have a chance to play for a postseason appearance, but their involvement on Sunday may help determine who does or doesn't get into the playoffs.
The Jets, Dolphins and Patriots enter week 17 each with a chance to win the AFC East division. Though the Jets lost to the Seahawks on Sunday, dropping one game back, they can still win it all. Who could ask for anything more in the final week.
Here are the standings if the season ended today:
x - The Titans have secured homefield throughout the playoffs and a first round bye
y - The Pittsburgh Steelers have homefield and a first round Bye
* - The Indianapolis Colts have secured a wildcard spot
Broncos @ San Diego
If the Chargers win, they win the division. If the Broncos win, they're division champs. The loser is out.
This is by far the most interesting scenario left.
Dolphins @ Jets
Miami wins the Division with a win.
New York the division with a win and a Patriots loss
New England @ Buffalo
New England wins the division with a win and a Miami loss.
The Ravens get the wildcard if they win, or both the Patriots and Jets lose.
The Jets get the wildcard if they win and the Ravens lose
The Patriots get the wildcard if they win, Miami wins and Baltimore loses.
