New, comments
NFL: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Though the Ravens are not in the postseason, fans still need to know where the league stands. Baltimore Beatdown has here for you the updated information.

AFC

Seed 1: New England Patriots

Locked into the #1 after delivering a beatdown on the Miami Dolphins. The road to the Super Bowl runs through Foxborough.

Seed 2: Oakland Raiders

Without their MVP candidate quarterback, the Matt McGloin led Raiders hope to make win it all.

Seed 3: Pittsburgh Steelers

After shattering the purple & black hearts on Christmas Day, the Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves in the third seed. One of the teams capable of keeping pace offensively with the Patriots while also pieced together on defense with a good coach.

Seed 4: Houston Texans

With Tom Savage at quarterback, the Texans managed to be the shiniest turd of the AFC South.

Seed 5: Kansas City Chiefs

The high-powered KC squad sit in the fifth seed after not surpassing the Raiders win total. They will be steamrolling in the wild card round against Houston, barring a fantasatic upset.

Seed 6: Miami Dolphins

A great back-half coaching turnaround from Adam Gase took this Miami team from another embarassing AFC East squad to post-season football. A great underdog competitor.

NFC

Seed 1: Dallas Cowboys

No Romo, no problem; the rookie sensation Ezekiel Elliott burst onto the scene, flourishing behind the Great Wall of Dallas 2.0. Helped that Dak Prescott, another rookie, also demonstrated his abilities of leading an NFL team.

Seed 2: Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons offense bullied teams with a balanced attack all season, it’s paying off in the win column, good enough to bring any competitor to the dome.

Seed 3: Seattle Seahawks

Somehow, without an offensive line, Russell Wilson is still alive and throwing touchdown passes. By not paying the offensive line though, they have a stellar defense capable of punishing quarterbacks and running backs alike. Even without Earl Thomas they’re coverage ability is top-tier.

Seed 4: Green Bay Packers

For now, the Packers are top of the NFC North. A winner-take-all against Detroit will determine the outcome for both squads

Seed 5: New York Giants

Eli Manning heard Brady and Company winning a lot of football games; he will not stand for it. The first wildcard belongs to them.

Seed 6: Detroit Lions

As stated above, they sit in the six seed for now. It’s up to them if they can win their division against Green Bay.
