With Washington's stunning come-from-behind win over the Ravens, the Patriots now control their own destiny for a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs.
If the Patriots win out, they will finish 13-3 while the best Baltimore can do is 12-4. The Ravens lost in Washington in overtime, 31-28, to fall to 9-4 on the season.
The Steelers lost at home to the Chargers, 34-24, while the Bengals lost at home to the Cowboys on a last-second field goal by Dan Bailey, 20-19. Both the Steelers and Bengals stand at 7-6 on the season. Indianapolis strengthened its hold on a playoff spot with a 27-23 win over the Titans at home and stands at 9-4.
The Patriots play the 11-1 Texans Monday night, and even if New England wins, the Texans still control their fate for the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoffs.
