AFC playoff brackets 2013 news reveals some interesting divisional match-ups. The new 2013 AFC playoff brackets could yield a Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens game as well as a Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs game. In the updated standings from Tuesday (Dec. 17), both scenarios could be very likely if the seeding were to remain the same for the postseason.

NFC Postseason Outlook

The two first round games would currently be Cincinnati vs. Baltimore and Indianapolis vs. Kansas City. It would be the third time that the Bengals and Ravens have played this season, giving the two AFC North teams a lot to play for. The teams still have a Week 17 game, though, and it could alter how things look. As for the Indianapolis vs. Kansas City game, it would create a scenario where the Chiefs could play the Broncos in the second round. The first match-up would take place in Ohio, with the second playing out in Indiana.

In the 2013 AFC playoff brackets the New England Patriots would play against the best remaining seed in the field in the second round. The Denver Broncos would then go up against the worst remaining seed, which is a benefit to being the top seed. This could potentially create a third Kansas City vs. Denver game of the year, with this one taking place in a possibly snowy Colorado.

A lot could still change in the final two weeks of the regular season, especially with the 8-6 Miami Dolphins trying to nab that second wild card slot. It's also possible that the Chiefs could catch the Broncos and take over the No. 1 seed in the conference. That would force the conference to go to Kansas City, where some really loud fans would love a shot at breaking the noise record for an NFL game again.

2013 AFC Playoff Brackets:

No. 4 Indianapolis Colts vs. No. 5 Kansas City Chiefs

No. 3 Cincinnati Bengals vs. No. 6 Baltimore Ravens

Worst remaining seed plays No. 1 Denver Broncos in second round.

Best remaining seed plays No. 2 New England Patriots in second round.
