There are just three weeks remaining in the NFL regular season, which means the playoff racing is heating up and teams are fighting for position down the final three-game stretch. The AFC Wild Card picture is a very tight race and a number of teams remain alive.

So far, the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts have won their division title and clinched a playoff berth, while the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals will be battling out for a first-round bye in the postseason.

In the Wild Card race, the Kansas City Chiefs would need a disaster of a finish to the season to fall out of the No. 5 seed and the Baltimore Ravens control their own destiny.

A few teams remain in the mix, but they will need to win out and have the Ravens stumble in order to clinch a playoff berth.

What are your team’s chances to make the postseason?

    “while the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals will be battling out for a first-round bye in the postseason.”

    Things may look a lot different after the Pats go to Miami this week and then travel to Baltimore to play the Ravens. They may be battling the Colts for the third spot and end up in the fourth slot. Hard to imagine the Pats going deep in the playoffs with all the key injuries on both sides of the ball….one and done is a good possibility.

    I wish it were so, but the Broncos don’t have their division locked up yet. Their magic number is 2, so if they lose out and KC wins two of their last three, Denver is a wild-card team. Unlikely, but I’ve seen dumber things happen. (Just ask Mike Shanahan about 2008, and duck.)
