Browns still have a path to the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage in the AFC


The Browns clinched a playoff berth with Thursday night’s win over the Jets, but their regular season could end with a much bigger prize: The No. 1 seed, a bye week and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Cleveland is one of three AFC teams, along with Baltimore and Miami, that still has a chance at the No. 1 seed. The Browns’ path to the top seed in the AFC is fairly simple: First, the Dolphins must beat the Ravens on Sunday. If the Ravens win or tie, the Ravens are the AFC No. 1 seed.
