The AFC's six playoff teams were set Sunday, and the most surprising entrant has to be the Colts. A close second would be the Bengals.

A year after finishing with the worst record in the league, the Colts are 10-5 after squeezing by the lowly Chiefs. Cincinnati, meanwhile, made its second straight playoffs for only the second time in franchise history.

The other four AFC playoff teams are the usual suspects: the Patriots, Texans, Ravens, and Broncos, all who clinched their divisions.

Welcome to the NFL

In his first NFL start, Jets quarterback Greg McElroy (who didn't play last year, his rookie season) learned firsthand that the NFL is a lot different than the SEC: The Alabama product was sacked 11 times by a San Diego Chargers squad that came into the game with just 27 sacks.

It was the most sacks allowed in a game by a single team this season.

For the record

Dallas' Jason Witten broke Tony Gonzalez's 2004 record for catches in a season by a tight end. He has 103, bettering the old mark of 102.

Minnesota rookie kicker Blair Walsh made a 56-yard field goal against Houston, giving him a record ninth field goal of 50 yards or more in a season.

Detroit's Calvin Johnson broke Jerry Rice's single-season yards receiving record on Saturday and is at 1,892 with a game left. He also became the only NFL player with 100 yards receiving in eight straight games.

Indianapolis' Andrew Luck passed for 205 yards to break Cam Newton's year-old rookie record of 4,051 yards in a season. With one game to go, Luck has 4,183 yards.
