The AFC bracket is officially closed. The Steelers are in, and the Jets are out. After the Patriots folded against the Dolphins, the top spot in the bracket was up for grabs.

In the afternoon game, the Broncos looked like the last thing they wanted was home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. They committed five turnovers, and eventually turned to Peyton Manning to save the say. Now they have the keys in the AFC, and the Bengals will have to face a division rival in their opening round game.

With the Steelers as the lowest seed, throw out the numbers. These are six good football teams, and any of them could take it to a Carolina or Arizona in the Super Bowl. For now, the journey starts with Wild Card Weekend next Saturday.

Here’s the final AFC bracket:
