A look at various playoffs scenarios in the AFC

The Baltimore Ravens have a half-game lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers with one game left on the schedule. The defending Super Bowl champions can't win the divisional title but can still secure a wildcard post, if they beat Washington in Week 17 and the Vikings lose to the Bears.

The Chiefs can still clinch the AFC West with a win next week against the Oakland Raiders. Further east, the New England Patriots completed a ideal season at home - winning their 10th consecutive AFC East title. Losses for the Chargers and the Chiefs would give the Patriots the chance to win the AFC.

U.S. considering substantial reduction of troops in Afghanistan
Since then, America has lost more than 2,400 soldiers and spent more than 900 billion dollars (£711 billion) in its longest war. A spokesman for President Ashraf Ghani said "if there is any reaction by the Afghan government, we will share it later".

With both teams being in the same division, the AFC has yet to crown three of its division winners. But it would also create a scenario where the victor of the Week 17 AFC South showdown between the 8-6 Indianapolis Colts, assuming they beat the New York Giants (5-9) at home Sunday, and Tennessee Titans (9-6) grabs the final wild card, bouncing Pittsburgh altogether from the playoffs for the first time since 2013. The Ravens still hold the final spot in the playoffs due to their superior record in the conference.

The race for the division is still on as the Colts can steal the AFC South from the Texans.

Kansas City Chiefs 11-4, first in AFC West.

Houston Texans 10-4, first in AFC South. Indianapolis is also tied with the 9-6 Tennessee Titans. But even if the Texans defeat the Jaguars, the Colts can earn a Wild Card berth with a win over Tennessee.
