Now let's look at the AFC. We begin in the East: New England Patriots: 14-2 (-2) New York Jets: 5-11 (+1) Buffalo Bills: 5-11 (-2) Miami Dolphins: 4-12 (+3) The Pats don't go undefeated, but still romp to a breathtaking nine-game victory over the Jets and Bills. The Bills drop a pair, while the Jets improve by one to force a tie for second. The Dolphs improve by three, but that's not enough to keep them out of the basement or save coach Cam Cameron's job. Tony Sparano will take the helm in Miami come 2008. We go to the expected wins tiebreaker to resolve the tie for second, and the Jets prevail, 5.4 to 4.9. Next, the North: Pittsburgh Steelers: 11-5 (+1) Cleveland Browns: 9-7 (-1) Cincinnati Bengals: 8-8 (+1) Baltimore Ravens: 5-11 (0) The Steelers add a game while the Browns drop one to settle the real-life tie for the top in Pittsburgh's favor. The Bengals pick up a game to finish right at .500, while the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens remain frozen in the basement. In a classic case of going from the penthouse to the outhouse, coach Brian Billick is fired just a year after winning his second Super Bowl with the team. He'll be replaced by John Harbaugh next season. Now, the South: Indianapolis Colts: 13-3 (0) Jacksonville Jaguars: 11-5 (0) Tennessee Titans: 8-8 (-2) Houston Texans: 8-8 (0) The only movement here comes from the Titans, who shed a pair of games and end up in a tie for third with the Texans. We go to the expected wins tiebreaker to settle the standoff, and the Titans prevail, 8.1 to 7.9. Finally, the West: San Diego Chargers: 11-5 (0) Denver Broncos: 6-10 (-1) Kansas City Chiefs: 5-11 (+1) Oakland Raiders: 5-11 (+1) The Bolts freeze on top of the division by five games over the Broncos, who drop a game. Elsewhere, both the Chiefs and Raiders add a game to carry over their real-life tie for third. We go to the expected wins tiebreaker to settle the aforementioned tie, and it's resolved in favor of the Raiders, 4.9 to 4.5. Seeds: 1. Patriots (AFC East champs): 14-2 2. Colts (AFC South champs): 13-3 3. Steelers (AFC North champs): 11-5 4. Chargers (AFC West champs): 11-5 5. Jaguars (AFC South second place): 11-5 6.
