Week 15 playoff picture

By Josh Katzowitz

We’ve had quite a few developments today in the 2011-12 playoff picture, and to see the graphic representation, feel free to click here to see what would happen if the playoffs started after today’s 4 p.m. games.

The developments from today include:

After the 1 p.m. games:

--Baltimore moves into top AFC seed (for now)

--Pittsburgh clinched a playoff berth thanks to the Titans losing to the Colts

After the 4 p.m. games:

--New England has clinched the AFC East

--Baltimore has clinched a playoff berth, along with Pittsburgh. Neither has clinched the AFC North title yet. Since BAL or PIT wins the division and the other is guaranteed a wild card berth, there's only one wild card spot up for grabs at this point in the AFC.

--No eliminations this round.

--Also, it’s still possible that the Broncos-Chiefs game in Week 17 (Tim Tebow vs. Kyle Orton) would be a “win and you’re in” game.
