Chiefs, Steelers, Saints can clinch playoff berths in Week 13

No, Mr. Jim Mora, we aren't kidding you.

It's the first week of December, and several NFL teams can already clinch playoff berths.

The Kansas City Chiefs can sew up a postseason spot with a victory over the Denver Broncos and clinch the AFC West with a win and some help.

The Pittsburgh Steelers would clinch a playoff spot by beating or tying Washington, and can swipe the AFC North with a win and some additional games falling their way.

The New Orleans Saints can cinch up a postseason spot with a win over the Falcons and a Chicago loss, or a tie and several other competitors losing.
