Week 13 saw some separation in the AFC with the top teams (BAL, PIT, NE, HOU) all winning to get to 9-3. The Denver Tebows keep on rolling and now control their own destiny in the West with Oakland's loss to Miami.
In the NFC, Dallas tripped up against Arizona and gave life to the Giants as both teams still control their own destiny for the division title. GB and SF look like they are headed for bye weeks, but New Orleans will give the Niners a run for their money with a relatively weak schedule. And Detroit and Chicago both look like teams that are not headed in the right direction.
Here's the PLAYOFF PICTURE for WEEK 14:
