NFL playoff confusion

Over at Yahoo sports it mentioned w/the Kansas City loss to the Raiders on Sat. that the Colts have clinched a playoff spot.However at NFL.com it doesn't mention that a Chiefs loss gets the Colts in the playoffs.Why can't they make things simple here.

On Sporting News Radio they are saying the Colts are in the playoffs.
Quadry Ismail has also been put on the IR.

since you answered his question, tattoo, I have a question for you ....


The yahoo pickem "DvdTalk with spreads," How in the world did you manage to basically win that league without doing your picks for the last two weeks? The second place team needs 7 picks right today/tomorrow to tie and 8 to win it. Ive got third wrapped up, since only three of us did our picks.

You just have to shake your head at the quality of some of these teams. Even the top seeds would be punks 5-10 years ago. These sure aren't the 49ers, Cowboys, or Packers of the 90's...
