ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - A bit of a wild weekend in the NFL as the playoffs nearing and the Kansas City Chiefs still are leading the AFC.

The Los Angeles Chargers one-point win 29-28 over the Chiefs on Thursday night left the two teams in a virtual tie atop the AFC West. Meanwhile, the Houston Texans took one step closer to the AFC South title with a win on Saturday night.

The Chiefs missed a chance to win the AFC West and be in position to clinch AFC home field advantage as early as Sunday.

The Chiefs however remain atop of the division because of a better divisional record at (4-1) then the Chargers at (3-2). The division title could come down to the week 17 match-up as the Chiefs might need to win at home against the Oakland Raiders to clinch the AFC West title.

Here is a look at the AFC and NFC standings as week 15 concludes.

Showers and thunderstorms are set to move into the area later this afternoon and overnight. Current models show the storms weakening before arriving into Missouri but will need to monitor them as there is the chance they could produce some gusty winds and large hail. These storms could also bring some heavy rainfall to the area. Best chance for thunderstorms will be after 5:00 p.m. through the overnight. Lows tonight are in the 60s.
