AFC Playoffs 2013: Wild Card picture


After yesterday’s Thanksgiving Day triple-header, the AFC playoff picture remains cloudy. The Baltimore Ravens, Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers all took place in the action, but the picture is not any clearer.

The Oakland Raiders likely watched their chances of making the postseason fall to the wayside, while the Baltimore Ravens took control of the second Wild Card spot. For the Steelers, they remain in the thick of the AFC picture, but they will need some help and will have to win out if they want any chance of making the postseason.

What are the chances for your team to make the postseason.
