     the AFC playoff race Red N'Keal Harry Jersey , which means it was a bad week for everyone giving chase.With five winners among the six teams that were in playoff position heading into Week 13 (the only loss coming on Sunday night, when two playoff teams met in Pittsburgh) 2019 N'Keal Harry Jersey , the top teams this week are the same as the top teams last week. And they’re getting more separation from the teams on the outside looking in.Here’s how the race looks after Week 13:LEADERS1. Kansas City (10-2): The Chiefs appear to be marching toward home-field advantage.2. New England (9-3): Owns the head-to-head tiebreaker over both Kansas City and Houston.3. Houston (9-3): A three-game lead in the AFC South with four games to play.4. Pittsburgh (7-4-1): Still leading the division, but a first-round playoff bye is probably unrealistic at this point.5. L.A. Chargers (9-3): The overwhelming favorites in the wild card race N'Keal Harry NFL Draft , but can they catch the Chiefs in the AFC West?6. Baltimore (7-5): Now 3-0 since Joe Flacco got hurt.OUTSIDE LOOKING IN7. Miami (6-6): Owns the AFC record tiebreaker over Indianapolis and Denver based on AFC record.8. Indianapolis (6-6): Losing to the Jaguars was a big blow to their playoff hopes9. Denver (6-6): They’ll probably have to win out to make the playoffs, but the way they’ve been playing lately Color Rush Jarrett Stidham Jersey , that’s entirely possible.10. Tennessee (6-6): The tiebreaker scenarios aren’t kind to the Titans.11. Cincinnati (5-7): With Andy Dalton out for the season, their playoff hopes have gone from slim to none.12. Cleveland (4-7-1): They’re making progress Youth Jarrett Stidham Jersey , but not playoff contenders yet.13. Buffalo (4-8): Certainly not a playoff team, but the Bills are playing better than most expected.14. Jacksonville (4-8): Last year’s defense finally showed up again.15. N.Y. Jets (3-9): Todd Bowles is coaching out the string now.16. Oakland (2-10): Gruden’s guys are playing for the first pick in the draft. A two-game losing streak in December jeopardized New England’s eight-year run of first-round byes. A two-game winning streak to end the season secured a ninth straight week off before the start of the team’s playoff run.And the Patriots made the most of it. They emerge from their two-week break at nearly full strength.Only one player has an injury designation for Sunday’s game against the Chargers: Defensive end Deatrich Wise is questionable with an ankle injury.Wise was limited in practice all week. Only one other player had a less-then-full practice in the days preceding the divisional round game against the Chargers. Tight end Dwayne Allen was limited by a knee injury on Wednesday. (Allen exited the injury report on Thursday.)If the Chargers become the first visiting team all season long to win at Gillette Stadium Womens Jarrett Stidham Jersey , the Patriots may have reasons for the end result. Their health entering the game won’t be one of them.
