Wild-card race

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

The Bron­cos’ loss Sun­day put their play­off chances in peril. They fin­ish at Kansas City and host Oakland while bat­tling for the No. 6 seed and last AFC play­off berth. The No. 5 seed isn’t pos­si­ble even if the Bron­cos (8-6) tie Kansas City (10-4) be­cause of tiebreak­ers. So, it’s a race for the No. 6 and fi­nal berth, in which the Bron­cos cur­rently do not fare well in sce­nar­ios. A look at the wild­card pic­ture in the AFC: Team (record) | re­main­ing sched­ule Cur­rently in … 5. Chiefs (10-4) | DEN, @SD 6. Dol­phins (9-5) | @BUFF, NE Just on the out­side … 7. Ravens* (8-6) | @PITT, @CIN 8. Ti­tans** (8-6) | @JAX, HOU 9. Bron­cos (8-6) | @KC, OAK *Ravens have bet­ter con­fer­ence record than Ti­tans and Bron­cos and cur­rently are sev­enth. Ti­tans beat the Bron­cos, so they stand eighth, with Den­ver ninth. **Ti­tans are tied for the AFC South lead, but they lose the head-to-head tiebreaker to Hous­ton.
