2012 NFL Playoff Picture: Bengals In Line For Wild Card

The Ravens survived a late scare to beat the Cleveland Browns 20-14, and it looks like the Patriots are going to beat the Bills as well. The New York Jets appear likely to lose against the Giants, and the Broncos (barring a serious miracle) look likely to lose as well. The Bengals just defeated the Arizona Cardinals. So here’s a look at the AFC playoff picture.

1. Patriots 12-3
2. Ravens 11-4
3. Texans 10-5
4. Broncos 8-7
5. Steelers 11-4
6. Bengals 9-6

The AFC West spot is still very much up for grabs. The Steelers can get a first-round bye if they win next week and the Bengals (who I assume will be highly motivated) beat the Ravens; otherwise, they’ll be the fifth seed. Assuming the Giants’ lead holds up, the Bengals will have a one-game lead on everyone in the battle for the last Wild Card spot.
