Clayton picks Ravens to be AFC's top seed

In ESPN.com's Hot Button, John Clayton picks the Baltimore Ravens to be the AFC's top seed while Ashley Fox is going with the New England Patriots.

Clayton believes 12 wins will secure the No. 1 spot for Baltimore. "With no conviction, I'm going to go with the Ravens only because they have a tiebreaker edge over the Steelers," Clayton wrote. "I'd go with the Patriots, but they would lose the tiebreaker to the Steelers because of their Week 8 loss to them at Heinz Field."

Heading into Week 11, five AFC teams are tied with the fewest losses at three: Pittsburgh (7-3), Houston (7-3), Baltimore (6-3), Cincinnati (6-3) and New England (6-3).
