One wild-card round matchup is set after Sunday's early games on the final weekend of the NFL season: Indianapolis at Baltimore.
And the defending Super Bowl champion Giants are out of contention.
The Ravens (10-6) had a chance to move up to the AFC's third seed with a win and a New England loss. But Baltimore fell at Cincinnati 23-17 as both teams played backups for much of the game.
So the AFC champion Ravens are seeded fourth, the Colts (11-5) are fifth and the Bengals (10-6) sixth. Indianapolis welcomed back coach Chuck Pagano with a 28-16 victory over Houston (12-4) that could damage the AFC South champion Texans' seeding.
Pagano returned after undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia for nearly three months.
When Chicago beat Detroit 26-24, the Giants (9-7) were eliminated, even though they routed Philadelphia 42-7.
