The Playoff Race has been updated following the 4 p.m. games, and there are quite a few things which we can take away from the graphic, if the playoffs started today.

-New England is back as the No. 1 seed in the AFC followed by the Ravens at No. 2, and both wild card spots would go to the AFC North. Oh, and right now, the Broncos, based on tiebreakers would win the AFC West.

-Obviously, the Packers get No. 1 seed in the NFC, followed by the 49ers, and both wild card sports would go to teams in the NFC North.

-San Francisco has clinched the NFC West division title. In Week 13, mind you.

-Green Bay will clinch the NFC North division title if Detroit loses tonight vs. New Orleans (the Packers clinched a playoff berth earlier today when Chicago lost).

-In the AFC, the Titans, Raiders and Jets (in that order) are on the outside looking in. In the NFC, it’s the Falcons.

Patriots retake top seed in AFC playoff race

There's nowhere near enough D to be optimistic about the playoffs. The Pats are beating teams with losing records. Denver is actually going to be a good barometer.
