The AFC playoff field is all but set heading in to the final week of the season, with the final Wild Card spot being the only seed up for grabs. To make things interesting, there are four teams that will be fighting for the spot.

The Miami Dolphins currently sit in the No. 6 seed, but the Baltimore Ravens, San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers are close behind.

Only one team will emerge from the final week of the season reaching their goal of the postseason, but who will it be? We will have to tune in to see.

    I’m not sure but I’m kind of content with the #4 seed. That would mean we play KC in the wild card. If we get the #3 we could be playing Miami or SanDiego who we’ve already lost to or Baltimore/Pittsburgh who we haven’t played. The devil we know?
