NFL playoff picture 2017: Where teams stand in Week 9

Week 9 marks the middle of the NFL season. It’s also far enough along that the playoff picture has begun to take shape with contenders rising to the top and a handful of teams already well out of contention.

The Patriots, Vikings and Steelers are all on bye in Week 9, and the Bills picked up a loss Thursday, but there were still plenty of other important matchups Sunday that influenced the race for spots in the postseason.

Here are the standings for each conference after Sunday. There’s only one game left this week: a Monday night rivalry game between the Packers and Lions.

AFC

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2)
  2. New England Patriots (6-2)
  3. Kansas City Chiefs (6-3)
  4. Tennessee Titans (5-3)
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-3)
  6. Buffalo Bills (5-3)

The Steelers and Patriots were off in Week 9, but for now, they both hold first-round byes. New England jumped to the No. 2 spot with the Chiefs’ loss to the Cowboys.

The AFC South has quickly become a two-team race after Deshaun Watson’s season-ending ACL injury. The Titans and Jaguars are both 5-3 after wins Sunday, but the Titans stay in first place in the division thanks to a head-to-head victory in Week 2. Jacksonville, which beat the Bengals this week, stays in the AFC Wild
