The defending NFL champion Baltimore Ravens will be at home for the playoffs.
So will the Miami Dolphins, putting the Pittsburgh Steelers in position to sneak off with the final AFC wild-card berth Sunday. But only if San Diego loses a late game to Kansas City, which already has earned a wild card and was resting many starters.
AFC North winner Cincinnati beat Baltimore 34-17, ensuring the Ravens (8-8) were eliminated once Pittsburgh (8-8) defeated Cleveland 20-7. Miami (8-8) lost to the New York Jets 20-7, putting the Steelers - who began the season 0-4 - in position to advance if San Diego (8-7) slips up at home.
Carolina (12-4) won the NFC South and a first-round playoff bye with a 21-20 victory at Atlanta.
