Poll results: AFC's top two seeds
By Jamison Hensley
In a SportsNation poll of over 7,300, the favorites to take the top two seeds in the AFC are the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens.
An overwhelming 70 percent of voters chose the Patriots and Ravens, both of whom could clinch a first-round bye and a home playoff game Saturday. The Patriots have to beat the Miami Dolphins at home. The Ravens need to defeat the Cleveland Browns in addition to a Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the St. Louis Rams.
If the Ravens lose at least one game and the Steelers win out, Pittsburgh would claim a top-two seed.
