The AFC's final playoff spot was decided in a thrilling, crazy set of games early in Week 17.
Unfortunately for fans in Kansas City and Houston, the Ravens ended all the fun. Baltimore's 17 unanswered fourth-quarter points against Cleveland locked down the AFC's sixth seed for the Ravens. Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense have not played well down the stretch, but they'll make the playoffs and play on the road against the AFC North winner next week.
Here's what else we know after the early set of games:
- The Chiefs and Chargers both hit the offseason at 9-7 knowing they need more firepower. The Chargers need a reliable pass rush, while Kansas City clearly lacks offensive firepower. It felt like Kansas City maxed out their potential at 9-7. Chase Daniel started hot against San Diego, but ultimately looked like a backup.
- The Bucs clinched the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft by blowing a big fourth-quarter lead against New Orleans. That is the definition of losing the battle, but winning the war.
