Most teams in the AFC had stayed in the playoff race for the entire 2014 season, but Week 15 went a long way toward straightening things out.

New England, Denver and Indianapolis all finally clinched spots, repeating as division champions. The other three playoff spots are essentially down to four teams. Baltimore, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh currently would all be going to the playoffs as the only other AFC teams with nine wins. Kansas City, with 34.1 percent odds to win a wild card, is the team most likely to take advantage should one of the AFC North teams slip. San Diego's odds are now at 10 percent; Buffalo and Houston now have odds in single digits; Cleveland and Miami are technically still alive as well, but we give them odds below 0.1 percent.

In the NFC, however, we don't really know much more than we already knew a week ago, and the scenarios to determine which team ends up in which seed are as convoluted as ever.
