Well...if we win @ NE and the Titans beat the Colts, The Texans are 12-1 & the Colts are 8-5. The Ravens & Broncos play each other so both can't win out and The Texans own the tiebreakers.
In that scenario:
Pats best finish 12-4
Texans worst finish 12-4
Ravens best finish either 13-3 or 12-4 - pending game vs Broncos
Broncos best finish either 13-3 or 12-4 - pending game vs Ravens
Colts best finish is 11-5
Edited: Texans would hold the tiebreaker over ALL the division winners and would clinch the division so they get the bye. They would still need another win or another loss by the winner of the Ravens/Broncos game to get HFA.
