The Cincinnati Bengals had a shot at taking over the No. 2 seed in the AFC and a first-round bye in the playoffs. An embarrassing loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football keeps them stuck in the third seed, though.
The Chiefs and Saints were also both in line to clinch playoff spots with wins on Sunday, but only Kansas City was able to accomplish the feat. Now the Saints will play against the Panthers in Week 15 with the NFC South on the line.
Here's the rest of the playoff picture after Sunday.
