CHirs Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

On the final day of the regular season, the Denver Broncos defeated the Kansas City Chiefs to clinch the AFC's No. 1 seed.

The Denver Broncos (13-3) earned the No. 1 seed in the AFC with a 38-3 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday. As the top seed, the Broncos will have a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

The New England Patriots (12-4) wrapped up the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye with a 28-0 win against the Miami Dolphins.

Needing a victory to clinch the No. 1 seed, the Houston Texans (12-4) fell flat in a 28-16 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, dropping to the No. 3 seed. The Texans will host the sixth-seeded Cincinnati Bengals (10-6) in the AFC Wild Card round. In the other Wild Card game, the No. 4 Baltimore Ravens (10-6), winners of the AFC North, have a home game against the fifth-seeded Colts (11-5).

The Chiefs finished the regular season with a 2-14 record, tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for worst in the NFL.
