The Chargers’ comeback win over the Chiefs on Thursday night created a tie atop the AFC West.The bad news for the Chargers is [url=]Thomas Sweeney NFL Draft[/url] , the Chiefs still own the tiebreaker, and only have to win out to clinch home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. That would require the Chargers to win on the road three times in January to make it to the Super Bowl.So the Chargers will be trying to win out, and hoping the Chiefs lose at least one of their last two games. Here’s how the AFC playoff race looks after Thursday night.1. Chiefs (11-3): Win the tiebreaker with the Chargers based on better AFC West record.2. Patriots (9-4): They’re still heavy favorites in the AFC East heading into Sunday’s big game in Pittsburgh.3. Texans (9-4): Could clinch the AFC South as soon as this week, if they win and the Colts and Titans lose.4. Steelers (7-5-1): A big game at home against the Patriots looms.5. Chargers (11-3): Tied in the AFC West, but they need to win out while the Chiefs lose or tie one of their last two games.6. Ravens (7-6): They remain the top wild card team, and have a good chance of catching the Steelers in the division. The Ravens own the tiebreaker over Miami based on common games, and over Indianapolis based on AFC games.7. Colts (7-6): Win the head-to-head tiebreaker over Miami and Tennessee. 8. Dolphins (7-6): Playoff hopes are still alive. 9. Titans (7-6): Tiebreaker scenarios aren’t great for Tennessee. 10. Broncos (6-7): Their playoff hopes are slim. 11. Browns (5-7-1): It may be too little too late, but give Cleveland credit for getting things in the right direction. 12. Bengals (5-8): Marvin Lewis can do no better than .500 this season. 13. Bills (4-9): After making the playoffs last year, they’re not even close this year. 14. Jaguars (4-9): From the AFC Championship Game to out of contention. 15. Jets (4-9): Todd Bowles’ guys are still playing hard [url=]Thomas Sweeney Buffalo Bills Jersey[/url] , even though they won’t save his job. 16. Raiders (3-10): Still playing hard, but long out of playoff contention. Cairo Santos pulled his first field goal attempt wide left from 50 yards, tried to fix the issue and overcorrected, yanking his next attempt from 36 yards wide right.It only got worse for Tennessee's replacement kicker and the Titans.After officials wiped a touchdown off the board for Marcus Mariota being over the line of scrimmage when he threw a pass to A.J. Brown, Santos lined up from 33 yards for the go-ahead field goal, only to have Darryl Johnson of the Bills block his kick.Coach Mike Vrabel sent Santos out for one last field goal. Santos missed again, this time wide left from 53 yards as the Titans lost 14-7 to Buffalo on Sunday."Never had a day like this," Santos said. "Have been bouncing around with teams for years and just haven't had a performance like this. In practice and workouts and in training camps, I haven't missed a kick under 40 yards in probably two years or something ... That is something that hasn't showed up till today."The Titans (2-3) signed the native of Sao Paolo [url=]Infant Devin Singletary Jersey[/url] , Brazil, on Sept. 4 when they put veteran Ryan Succop on injured reserve, a move designed to let Succop gain strength after having surgery this offseason on his kicking leg. Santos came in having made 4 of 5 field goals for Tennessee, and he had made 83.1 percent for his career.Vrabel defended sending Santos out for the final field goal attempt with 6:31 left with Tennessee trailing 14-7, saying he had confidence in the kicker. Vrabel also wanted to get some points knowing the Titans would need to score again to win."We like to think that if you make mistakes we can get them fixed and corrected, whether that's on the field, whether that's coaching that's really ... well this is our kicker," Vrab
