6. NE (3-1) Pit (6-3) Cin (6-4) Cin (7-4) Cin (7-5)

The NFC saw the top 3 teams win while the next 3 all lost, so no changes. The Giants are the only team at 6-6, their game against Dallas next Sunday has huge implications.

In the AFC, Houston's win was over an NFC team, so they dropped back to third as the Pats have the better strength of victory and Baltimore beat the Texans already. Tebow has the Broncos in the playoffs following Oakland's loss. These two split the season series, so Denver gets the nod based on their better divisional record. There are four 7-5 teams vying for that final wild card spot, one per division. Cincy takes it right now based on their 6-4 conference record, but Tennessee is at 5-4 while the Jets and Raiders are at 5-5, so it could go to any of them depending on how the final four weeks play out.

Best,

Sean
