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.

A cloudy start to your Saturday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Temperatures will stay in the lower 30's for the majority of the day. We will continue to watch a storm system for Sunday morning and afternoon which could bring us some light to moderate snow.
