The Denver Broncos have a chance to clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs when the host the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
At 12-3, the Broncos are currently second behind the Houston Texans in the AFC standings. With a victory against the 2-13 Chiefs, the Broncos would be guaranteed no worse than the second seed in the AFC playoffs and the first-round bye that goes with it. Denver could clinch the top overall seed only if the Broncos were to win and if Houston lost to the Indianapolis Colts.
Denver could fall to the third seed with a loss to the Chiefs and if the New England Patriots beat the Miami Dolphins.
In other noteworthy games around the league, the NFC East will be decided on Sunday night when the Dallas Cowboys head to the nation's capital to take on rookie sensation Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.The full Week 17 slate is below. All times are Eastern.
