- First, the Patriots head to Buffalo to face the Bills. Should the Pats lose their grip on the AFC East, they become factors in the Wildcard Race, though the Broncos hold the tie-breaker.
- Next, we have the Titans and Dolphins from Tennessee. The Dolphins are one of the two teams that can win out and knock the Broncos off on tie-breakers should Denver finish 10-6.
- Lastly, the Jets and Falcons play in the Meadowlands. At 7-6, the Jets could win their final 3 and finish at 10-6, but all 3 teams - the Dolphins, Patriots and Jets are in play for a division title as well.
Of course, the Broncos can make it all a moot point by simply winning their final 3 games and finishing the season at 11-5 - the Broncos control their own destiny - win and they are in.
