There were two unknowns regarding the AFC playoff picture entering the final week of the season. Both have now been answered. The Houston Texans (9-7) wrapped up the AFC South, thanks in part to a 30-6 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11), but confirmed it due to the New Orleans Saints (7-9) 20-17 victory over the Atlanta Falcons (8-8). That result confirmed that the Indianapolis Colts (8-8) could not reach the playoffs, despite their 30-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans (3-13). That loss also guaranteed the Titans the number 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, a year after they had the number 2 selection, picking quarterback Marcus Mariota. Elsewhere, it was heartbreak for the New York Jets (10-6), as quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions in 22-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills (8-8). It gave former Jets head coach Rex Ryan a sweep of the Jets with his current employers, with this loss eliminating the Jets from playoff contention thanks the Pittsburgh Steelers (10-6) domination of the Cleveland Browns (3-13) 28-12. The Jets started the day in the final wildcard spot, but were leapfrogged by the Steelers, whose hopes were hanging by a thread after their surprise loss to the Baltimore Ravens (5-11) last weekend. However, fast forward a week, and it’s the Steelers still standing when all is said and done.
