AFC - 6 games left

So, here you go... a chance to say "screw you, we don't care about football and thanks for being an a** for posing this thread".

We're 6 games from the end of the season and if the playoffs were today, it would look like this for the AFC.

#1: Texans 9-1 (3 games up)
#2: Ravens 8-2 (2 games up)
#3: Patriots 7-3 (3 games up)
#4: Broncos 7-3 (3 games up)
#5: Colts 6-4 (2 behind HOU)
#6: Steelers 6-4 (2 behind BAL)

Texans and Ravens have the bye.
Steelers @ Patriots / Colts @ Broncos

A lot can happen in the final 6 games and check out the remaining schedules, Denver can make a move to the top 1-2 spots if they do this right. It helps that NE loses Gronk for a month and there are some tough games left for those top 3 teams.

It will be interesting to see how INDY plays out the rest of their games, Houston has a tough stretch... there's not a whole lot of distance within the seedings as they stand today. Denver needs to hold tight, win 4-5 of the 6 and then hope that the others knock each other out a bit. It would be great to vault up into that 1-2 seed area. We'll see though... anything can happen and injuries are starting to sneak up.

Patriots - 2 tough road games, should win rest
@ Jets
@ Dolphins
Texans
49ers
@ Jags
Dolphins

Texans - tough road schedule. Pats are tough, Colts?, Vikings? Lions?
@ Lions
@ Titans
@ Patriots
Colts
Vikings
@ Colts

Ravens - tough games vs teams in Red - how about RGIII?
@ Chargers
Steelers
@ Redskins
Broncos
Giants
@Bengals

Broncos - easiest remaining schedule, tough games vs Bucs and @ BAL
@ Chiefs
Bucs
@ Raiders
@ Ravens
Browns
Chiefs

How do you guys see things shaping up? The Bengals are the only team above .500 in that race for the #6 spot. A few teams - Jets, Titans and Chargers are still alive... but barely.

Bengals are waiting for the Steelers and Colts to stumble, but CIN has a few tough games as well.
