The AFC East is going to be a great division to watch this year. The New York Jets have gone out and put everything into this season. With the additions added to the Jets, they will be an exciting team to watch. New England will be vying for the top spot once again, led by Tom Brady, Randy Moss, and Bill Belicheck. The Miami Dolphins went out and added Brandon Marshall to give them that ouside threat and make their division odds even higher. The Buffalo Bills went and drafted C.J. Spiller, but seem to lack the aresenal to compete in this very strong division.
Buffalo Bills - The Buffalo Bills will have an uphill battle this season. The three teams they compete against are beginning to put themselves in a class of their own, while the Bills are beginning their rebuilding process. They picked up C.J. Spiller in the draft would should strengthing their offense, but not enough. The defense is in the process of switching to the 3-4. With them going through rebuilding and their conference being superior, the Buffalo Bills will finish 4-12.
Miami Dolphins - The Miami Dolphins have attempted to compete up with the rest of their division rivals by adding Brandon Marshall to the offense. Chad Henne will be leading the way, and Ronnie Brown will be back in the mix. Where does this leave the Dolphins? This puts them in good position to push for the playoffs after they took a year off last season. They have a mediocre schedule, with their toughest games being in the division. With the additions to the Dolphins, they are able to squeeze out a few more wins than last year. The Miami Dolphins finish 9-7.
New England Patriots - Each and every year it seems the Patriots are involved in the race for the AFC East, and that does not appear to change this year. The Patriots will have a healthy Wes Welker back, Tom Brady under the center, and Randy Moss going deep, this will pose a problem for every team they play. The Patriots have seen the teams in their division inch closer to the talent that the Patriots have. The Patriots have a mediocre schedule in which they should perform well. The Patriots finish 11-5.
New York Jets - The New York Jets have really made a splash this offseason. If they wanted a player, they found a way to get them. They aquired Santonio Holmes, Ladainian Tomlinson, Jason Taylor, and Antonio Cromartie. These additions to an already talented team could put them over the top in the AFC East. This talent and personalities will be great to watch each Sunday, no matter if they win or lose. The Jets have closed the gap on not only the AFC East, but the whole conference as a whole. This season the Jets finish 12-4.
