The NFL playoff races are dwindling down. We've already had multiple teams clinch postseason berths today.

The New England Patriots won a 10th-straight AFC East title and clinched a 16th-consecutive season with double-digit wins by taking down the Buffalo Bills. Tom Brady was shaky, but it didn't matter as the Pats took care of business.

Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-20. The win gave Dallas its third division tile in the last five seasons.

The Minnesota Vikings came close to wrapping up a wild card spot, but the Philadelphia Eagles' comeback win over the Houston Texans kept them in the running.

In the AFC, the Patriots are the only team to clinch a division title, as of now.

The other three divisions will be decided next week.

In the NFC, all four divisions have been wrapped up. All that is left is the wild card spots.
