NFL Playoffs 2013: Week 13 Playoff Scenarios

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals can't clinch anything, but they could affect it for other teams with a win.

The Cincinnati Bengals can't clinch a postseason berth just yet, but they could affect it for the Denver Broncos and Kansas City, both of whom have a shot at with a Chargers loss -- as well as losses among other Wild Card potentials. The Seattle Seahawks have an opportunity to clinch a postseason berth as well.
