Tom Brady and Peyton Manning clinched division titles, Cam Newton reached the postseason for the first time and the NFL headed to a final-game thriller to decide the last spot in a scrambled playoff race.
Next Sunday night, the Dallas Cowboys will host the Philadelphia Eagles in an all-or-nothing showdown to end the regular season — the winner takes the NFC East, the loser is out.
All the AFC division titles got settled Sunday. Denver, New England and Cincinnati won to join Indianapolis with crowns.
Kansas City is assured of one AFC wild-card spot. Defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore, Miami and San Diego are tied at 8-7 for the other slot with even Pittsburgh at 7-8 still in it.
Newton and his Carolina Panthers, along with Seattle, are the only NFC teams with guaranteed playoff berths.
