AFC Playoff Picture: Buffalo Bills’ win on Monday gives them breathing room in crowded conference

Seemingly everyone won on Sunday

The Buffalo Bills beat the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football and, with it, secured the third seed in the AFC for at least one more week thanks to a Tennessee Titans loss. While it’s still unlikely the Bills move up in the AFC seeding, they face the first-place Pittsburgh Steelers this coming Sunday night. If Buffalo keeps winning, they’ll be the three or four seed come January.

Here is the AFC playoff picture with the Baltimore Ravens still set to face the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday night.
