Broncos 38, Chiefs 3
Peyton Manning passed for 304 yards and three touchdowns Sunday to lead Denver to a 38-3 victory over Kansas City that clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs for the Broncos.
Manning ended the season with 4,659 yards, just 41 short of his career high. He had 37 touchdown passes.
Denver (13-3) won its 11th consecutive game and jumped over Houston for the top seed after the Texans lost to Indianapolis 28-16 earlier in the day.
The Chiefs gained just 119 yards in the game and finished their season 2-14. They will get the No. 1 pick in April's draft.
Seahawks 20, Rams 13
Russell Wilson's 1-yard touchdown run with 1:39 remaining gave Seattle a victory over St. Louis and an 8-0 home mark. He tied Peyton Manning's record for most touchdown passes by a rookie with 26.
Seattle (11-5) began the day with hopes of capturing the NFC West and landing a home playoff game, but those dreams didn't come to fruition as San Francisco beat Arizona 27-13 to clinch the division. Seattle will be the No. 5 seed in the NFC and face the NFC East champion Washington Redskins in the opening round of the playoffs next weekend.
Seattle finished the season as the only undefeated team at home in the league.
Bucs 22, Falcons 17
Doug Martin ran for 141 yards, Josh Freeman connected with Mike Williams on a touchdown pass and Tampa Bay beat Atlanta. Entering the game, the Falcons had planned to gain momentum for the playoffs with a victory over the Bucs, but Tampa Bay stymied those efforts.
The Falcons (13-3) didn't have much to play for as they already have home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Coach Mike Smith said he wanted to "finish the regular season the right way," and he played his starters through the game.
49ers 27, Cardinals 13
San Francisco won its second consecutive NFC West title with a win over Arizona. Michael Crabtree caught touchdown passes of 49 and 7 yards and finished with a career-high 172 yards.
Colin Kaepernick fought through a slow start to pass for a career-high 276 yards and two touchdowns as the 49ers (11-4-1) did their part to manage the postseason picture. With Minnesota's win over Green Bay, the 49ers captured the NFC's No. 2 seed.
Frank Gore reached his franchise-best 51st rushing touchdown on a two-yard run early in the fourth quarter.
