·1 min read

We’re seven weeks into the NFL season and what Chargers fans want to know most is where the team stands following the blowout loss to the Ravens and heading into the bye week.

A lot can change before the end of the regular season, but Baltimore currently has the first seed in the AFC.

The top-seeded team in each conference earns a bye in the playoffs and division winners receive the No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4 seeds. Non-division winners with the best records receive the No. 5 through No. 7 seeds.

AFC Playoff Picture after Week 6:

  1. Baltimore Ravens (5-1)

  2. Los Angeles Chargers (4-2)

  3. Tennessee Titans (4-2)

  4. Buffalo Bills (4-2)

  5. Cincinnati Bengals (4-2)

  6. Las Vegas Raiders (4-2)

  7. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-3)

In the hunt:

  • Denver Broncos (3-3)

  • Kansas City Chiefs (3-3)

  • Cleveland Browns (3-3)

  • New England Patriots (2-4)

  • Indianapolis Colts (2-4)

AFC playoff matchups if the season ended today:

  • No. 2 Chargers vs. No. 7 Steelers

  • No. 3 Titans vs. No. 6 Raiders

  • No. 4 Bills vs. No. 5 Bengals

So as of now, Chargers fans can take a deep breath because the team is in a comfortable position for the postseason through the first seven weeks of the season. When they return from the bye, Los Angeles has the sixth-easiest schedule.
