Poll: Who'll be the AFC's top two seeds?

By Jamison Hensley

With two games remaining in the regular season, the top two seeds in the AFC (and the first-round byes in the playoffs) remain up in the air between the New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Patriots (11-3) have a one-game lead on the rest of the AFC pack. The Ravens (10-4) hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Steelers (10-4) and Texans (10-4) because they beat both teams during the regular season. But the Steelers and Texans can still earn a top-two seed if they win out and the Patriots and Ravens both stumble.

Here are the remaining games for those teams:

NEW ENGLAND: home against Miami and home against Buffalo.

BALTIMORE: home against Cleveland and at Cincinnati.

PITTSBURGH: home against St. Louis and at Cleveland.

HOUSTON: at Indianapolis and home against Tennessee.
