There are three teams vying for second place in the AFC. The New England Patriots (9-3), Baltimore Ravens (9-3) and Denver Broncos (10-3) are all in competition for the No. 2 seed, which comes with an important first-round bye in the playoffs.
Our "Poll Friday" question: Who will prevail and get the No. 2 seed?
Is it the Patriots? New England has won six games in a row but has its toughest game of the season against the Houston Texans on “Monday Night Football.” The Patriots also have to play the San Francisco 49ers next week. Any losses could eliminate New England’s chances for the second seed.
What about the Ravens? The reigning AFC North champions suffered a big loss last week against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. But Baltimore does own a head-to-head win over the Patriots, which could come into play.
Finally, we have the Broncos. Denver already won for Week 14 Thursday night with a win over the Oakland Raiders. The Broncos have a head start over the rest of the AFC. Will they get the No. 2 seed?
