AFC East: If Not The Pats Then Who?

The New England Patriots are the -150 favorites to win the AFC East and with good reason, the Patriots have been dominated the AFC East for almost 14 consecutive years.

Since the Bill Belihick-Tom Brady era began 14 years ago, the Pats ave won the AFC East 12 times. They are the defending Super Bowl champions and despite Brady being suspended for four games they continue to be favorites. The Miami Dolphins have a +400 moneyline. The Buffalo Bills have a +425 moneyline. The New York Jets have a +750 moneyline.

This year the Pats are vulnerable. In addition to Brady’s suspension, Derrelle Revis and Brandon Browner have both left the team. Do the other teams in the AFC East have the talent to take advantage of a perhaps disadvantaged New England?

The Dolphins have the next best odds. They signed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and improved in the reciever department.

Buffalo have a new head coach, Rex Ryan, EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel are both jocking to be the No. 1 QB. The last team in the AFC East, the Jets, will be without Geno Smith for a while. They have improved their secondary, though thanks to picking up Revis.
