OK, I know, KC had a better division record than Denver. But aren't the Wildcard positions supposed to be a CONFERENCE wide competition, IE the best remaining teams in the CONFERENCE? The first four seedings go to the four division champions, so in this case it's entirely appropriate that division records among teams tied for a divison lead are considered (after head-to-head), but in my opinion, division records should NOT be considered when deciding Wildcard seedings. Denver was 8-4 in the AFC, KC was 5-7, making DENVER the decided "better AFC team". Of course, this means Denver was a worse team against the NFC, and ultimately, there is a large degree of arbitrariness (is that a word?) to these rules, but I think this would make them more consistent.
