1. New England Patriots (13-3) | AFC No. 1 seed
They took care of business Sunday against the Jets, securing the AFC's top seed, and now they have a bye week to rest and prepare to host a conference semifinal at home. The road to the Super Bowl in the AFC goes through Foxborough, Massachusetts, and it looks like the Patriots are headed to an eighth Super Bowl appearance with Bill Belichick as their coach and Tom Brady as their QB.
