FOXBORO -- New England is the AFC's No. 2 playoff seed.

With Indianapolis and Cincinnati winning their respective matinee games, the Patriots needed to beat Buffalo to secure a first-round bye. They did.

Denver walloped Oakland, 34-14, and clinched the No. 1 overall spot. The rest of the AFC postseason picture takes shape with the Bengals at No. 3, Colts at No. 4, the Chiefs at No. 5 and the Chargers at No. 6. San Diego qualified with a wild overtime victory at home over Kansas City; had the Chargers lost, the Steelers would have taken the sixth seed.

New England will play the highest winning seed from the Wild Card round -- either the Bengals, Colts or Chiefs -- on January 11 or 12.
