With the Rams and Jaguars on the road for Week 13, the NFL Playoff Predictor has come up with their Week 13 slate.
The Patriots and Raiders are still in the mix for first and second seed, with the Colts and Falcons having to fight for a spot in the wild-card game.
The AFC East is still looking at a wild-type scenario with the Patriots, Raiders and Patriots all in the hunt for a playoff spot.
The Colts, Chargers, Jaguars and Panthers all have a shot at making the playoffs.
The Patriots and Chiefs are the favorites in the AFC West, but that could change if the Raiders lose to the Titans.
There’s plenty to like in the predictions.
The Chiefs, Patriots and Broncos are the best teams in the league right now, and all three teams have the potential to finish with the best record in the division.
We like the Raiders’ chances at a playoff berth in the new league.
We expect the Chiefs to win the AFC South and the Chargers to keep their playoff hopes alive.
We also have the Chargers in first place and the Patriots and Patriots in second.
The Raiders, Chiefs and Patriots could all be in the conversation for a wild card spot if they win out in their games against the Patriots.
If the Raiders, Broncos and Jaguars finish in the top three spots in the West, they could make the playoffs after the Chargers lose to their AFC West rivals.
If the Broncos lose to San Diego, the Chiefs and Panthers would have to beat the Texans to reach the postseason.
The Colts and Raiders would have a strong chance at a second wild card after the Jaguars beat the Titans, and the Panthers would be a good bet to finish in a wild game if they lose to New Orleans.
The AFC East, however, is looking more and more like a one-team race, with a divisional tiebreaker of 1-1 tiebreaker.
The only team that is likely to finish above .500 is the Patriots who have the AFC’s best record and a shot to win their first division title since 2008.
We would not be surprised to see the Patriots finish in second or third place, but they would likely have to defeat the Broncos to make the postseason in the NFL Playoffs.
The Bills are looking to bounce back from a 1-3 start, and a trip to Arizona to face the Cardinals should help.
The Bills are on pace to win three of their final four games, and we expect them to make it to the playoffs if they beat the Cardinals.
We like the Cardinals, who have a very good chance to win a division title, as well as the Raiders.
We also expect the Broncos and Panthers to make their way into the playoffs with wins against the Chargers and Jaguars.
The Chiefs are going to be the toughest out of the AFC East teams to predict.
They’re playing with two of the best rosters in the entire league right at home, and if they can keep up with the Jaguars, they should be a top-10 team in the country.
We have the Chiefs finishing first in the conference and the Broncos in second, but the Cardinals could easily fall to third or fourth.
The Rams, who are coming off a 2-2 start, are looking for their second consecutive playoff berth.
The Rams have the best offense in the NFC West and they have the ability to keep up the pace if they play the Chargers.
We think the Rams will make the AFC wild-types by beating the Broncos, but we think the Chiefs could make it as well.
The Chargers are in a difficult situation with a bye week coming up.
They have a good chance at winning the division with a win over the Broncos or at the least beating the Chargers, Cardinals and Jaguars in the Wild Card game.
We don’t see the Chargers finishing in the bottom third of the division, and they’ll likely be a favorite to win it if they finish above the Raiders and Chargers.
The Panthers are one of the most exciting teams in football right now.
They were the AFC Championship Game champions in 2016 and are playing a much more consistent schedule right now than in the past few seasons.
The Panthers will probably finish in first in their division, but could fall short if they defeat the Raiders or Jaguars in their remaining games.
The Titans are looking at playing a lot of defense and have a chance to make a run at the AFC North title.
We’re expecting them to play a lot on offense, but also expect them not to finish top five in the total yards allowed.
The Ravens are one win away from their first playoff berth since 2008, but are coming up short in the season opener against the Colts.
Baltimore is still one win from the AFC title, but if they go 3-6, they’re probably going to fall short of that point.
The Dolphins have a tough game against the Jets.
The Dolphins are
