    With 3 weeks til playoffs and it's tight around here. Let's begin with the lead dog in the race. The Titans are out from with a 3 game lead with 3 games remaining. It's pretty safe to say they have the number one seed locked up. But that's the only almost definite.

    AFC South

    The Titans are 11-1 and finally get Mariota back after a 4 week absence. The Titans were brought back to Earth from their undefeated quest by the Jets in week 14. They do have a tough 3 weeks remaining though as they face the Patriots, Texans and red hot Colts. But some say it's better to lose now and go on another run for the Championship. The Colts have turned there season around and now sit at 9-4 and are looking very good at this point in the season. The Colts have won 4 straight and 8 of their last 9 and look to cause problems. Their last 3 opponents are Texans, Dolphins and Titans. The Jags start the season hot. They were the surprise of the season early on, starting out 6-3 but have since gone 1-3. It's a hard rode ahead of them. Can they right the ship and sneak in the playoffs.

    AFC East

    This is the closest of all the AFC races. The Jets have a one game lead over the Patriots and they meet in week 16 and closeout against a tough Bills team in week 17. It's to close of a race to call a winner in this division. The Patriots and Jets coaches are sim vets and guaranteed to pull out all the stops to close out strong and win the division. The Patriots last 3 opponents are Titans, Jets and Dolphins. Can the Jets closeout the season strong? They have been playing better football since Bryce Petty took over at QB.

    AFC North

    The Ravens hold a 2 game lead over the Browns with 3 games remaining. They are Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. That's not an easy road. But the Browns also have a tough road with Seahawks, Chiefs and Steelers. Can the Ravens hold onto their lead or will the schedule allow the Browns to sneak in? Time will definitely tell!

    AFC West

    Last but definitely not least and probably the most exciting. The Broncos are 9-4 and the Chiefs and Chargers are 7-6.The Broncos have been lights out prior to their loss to the Raiders in week 14. Prior to that loss, the Broncos had won 8 straight games. Their final 3 games are Steelers, Bengals and Chargers. Will they be able to maintain their grip on the division. The Chiefs and Chargers are not willing to go away quietly though and will be chomping at the bit if the Broncos slip up.

    Good luck to all and let's get this show on the road!
