The first round of Week 17 games are in the book now, and the NFL playoff picture has changed dramatically. The Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens are now essentially eliminated after losing their games, while the Pittsburgh Steelers are still alive and are in if the San Diego Chargers lose to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Here’s a updated look at the NFL playoff picture:

 

AFC

DENVER BRONCOS 

Denver is playing for home-field advantage through the playoffs. They clinch that with a win or Patriots loss. They lead Raiders 31-0 at halftime.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

New England is really playing for a first-round bye. If Denver loses and New England wins, they’ll get home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. They lead Bills 16- at halftime.

CINCINNATI BENGALS

The Bengals earn a first-round bye, if the Bills to beat the Patriots.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

The Bengals won, so the Colts will head to the Wild Card round and are locked in the No. 4 seed.

MIAMI DOLPHINS

The Dolphins lost to the New York Jets and are eliminated.

BALTIMORE RAVENS 

The Ravens lost to the Bengals and eliminated from the playoffs.

SAN DIEGO CHARGERS 

If the Chargers beat the Chiefs, they’re in the playoffs.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS

They need the Chargers to lose to the Chiefs and they’re in.
