New, comments
NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars are in sole possession of first place in the AFC South after a 30-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Their 9-4 record also has them as the third-best team in the AFC playoff race.

The No. 3 seed.

In Week 15.

With Blake Bortles as their quarterback.

What a time to be alive.

How does the rest of the AFC look?

AFC playoff breakdown

1. Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2): AFC North winner, clinched. How do they keep winning? How? They’re assured a home playoff game, now it’s a matter of which seed. They could lose the top spot, however.

2. New England Patriots (10-3): AFC East leader. They lost to the Miami Dolphins and now they play the Steelers. Screw Rob Gronkowski.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars (9-4): AFC South leader. *laughs hysterically*

4. Kansas City Chiefs (7-6): AFC West leader. Tied with the Los Angeles Chargers. Don’t be surprised if they fall out of the playoff race with how Alex Smith’s play has dipped.

5. Tennessee Titans (8-5): *still laughing hysterically*

6. Baltimore Ravens (7-6): How did they lose

In the hunt: Buffalo Bills (7-6), Los Angeles Chargers (7-6), Oakland Raiders (6-7), and Miami Dolphins (6-7)
