The Bills stay in the driver’s seat.

The Buffalo Bills lost to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday but the lead they had built in the AFC playoff race means they stay exactly where they were. Buffalo is the five seed in the AFC, just as they were entering the day.

The Baltimore Ravens won, sending them past Buffalo in the overall AFC ranking. Elsewhere at the top, the Kansas City Chiefs lost but still lead the AFC West at 6-4. Buffalo is tied with Houston at 5-3, but the Texans have a better conference record right now. The biggest news was when the Indianapolis Colts lost, leaving them a game back of Buffalo for the five seed.

Further down the list, the Pittsburgh Steelers are making a run without Ben Roethlisberger and have won four straight. The Tennessee Titans evened their record at 5-5 win a win over Kansas City and on Thursday night, the Raiders beat the Los Angeles Chargers and Oakland is now 5-4.

It all adds up to a much tighter race in the AFC. Here are the full standings.
