NFL playoff contenders have two chances to keep their hopes of reaching the Super Bowl alive as the season approaches the end. The AFC still boasts a range of teams with a real shot at qualifying for the wildcard and divisional rounds. Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans both won in their early games yesterday, putting big pressure on the Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers to secure results today.
