Trey Wingo: Race for AFC's top seed "going to be a sprint to the finish"


Heading into last week's game against the Bengals, the Chiefs were in pretty good position. A win over another AFC title contender would have gone a very long way in securing their spot as the top seed in the division, meaning the path to the Super Bowl would have gone through Kansas City. Of course, that didn't happen, and the loss gave the Bills – who were on a bye – the top seed for now. With five weeks left in the regular season and a lot of matchups between some of the division's best teams still to come, how will the standings shake out? Speaking to 610's Fescoe In The Morning on Thursday, NFL analyst Trey Wingo gave his take.

"Yeah, I mean, just to put it in perspective, before last week, the Bills were the 5 seed, the Dolphins were the division leaders in the AFC East, and the Chiefs were the 1 seed," he said. "Right now, the Bills, [didn't play] on Sunday, Miami falls to the 5 seed, they're the 1 seed, and Kansas City is the 2 seed. So, it's going to be a sprint to the finish, because all these teams are going to play each other. The Chiefs, in one sense, have the easiest road, in terms of who they play ... by any measure, their road to getting to the #1 seed is probably stronger than anyone else. They just need Buffalo to lose one more game."
