Baltimore is one obstacle in the Broncos' unstated pursuit of the No. 2 seed. The Patriots, and possibly the Texans, are the other. Even after the Texans were humbled in Foxborough, Mass., on Monday night, Houston owns the AFC's best record at 11-2. New England is No. 2 with a 10-3 mark, plus the head-to-head tiebreaker against the Broncos.
