The Tennessee Titans and New York Giants have secured home field advantage for the playoffs with key victories on the penultimate weekend of the regular season.

The Titans, who have the NFL's best record, claimed top seeding in the AFC by crushing the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-14 in a precursor to a potential playoff showdown.

And the Chicago Bears kept their playoff run alive on Monday after beating rivals the Green Bay Packers 20-17 in an overtime thriller at a frozen Soldiers Field.
