The Cincinnati Bengals’ win over the Indianapolis Colts likely locked Indy into the AFC’s No. 4 seed, and the Kansas City Chiefs’ win over the Washington Redskins likely locked them into the No. 5 seed. As of now, the likeliest playoff matchup to occur will be the Chiefs heading to Indy to face the Colts in the Wild Card round.

But after that, there’s still a lot to be determined as far as playoff matchups and who even makes it to the postseason. Here is the most up-to-date playoff picture:
