2ND HALF PREVIEW
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
New England has had to weather a storm of injuries to key players, while transitioning with the addition of new ones. But with Future Hall of Fame Quarterback Tom Brady and Head Coach Bill Belichek on top of their games, the Patriots are in position for another division title.
New Head Coach Sean McDermott has done a great job of getting his players to buy in, which has allowed him to get maximum effort out of his team. The Bills have started strong in recent years but crumbled down the stretch. Let's see if things will turn out different this season.
NEW YORK JETS
The Jets were thought to be the worst team in the NFL this season but Head Coach Todd Bowles has pushed all the right buttons and a mix of veteran players and young developing talent have allowed New York to be much more competitive than expected.
It's been a flat out travesty in Miami this season where there is certainly enough blame to go around starting from the front office down. Miami has a record of 4-3 but after the abrupt firing of a coach, shocking trade and embarrassing loss on national TV, the Dolphins season is hanging in the balance.
