SAME OLD SONG
Unless something goes catastrophically wrong, the New England Patriots will win another AFC East title, while the rest of the division is in a rat race for 2nd place and hopes of a Wild Card berth.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
The Patriots are the defending AFC East Champions and by far the class of the division. With the return of All-Pro Tight End Rob Gronkowski in addition to some immediate impact free agents, New England is fully reloaded and ready to defend their division crown.
The Miami Dolphins are looking to build on their new found identity under 2nd year Head Coach Adam Gase and a rejuvenated running game. After a sluggish start to last season, the Dolphins earned a Wild Card spot but still have their work cut out if they plan on advancing deep into the Playoffs.
The Buffalo Bills have had some good talent in recent years but injuries, bad luck with draft picks and the inability to win crucial games have haunted the team for too long. Can a new Head Coach and GM push the right buttons to help Buffalo turn the corner and head in the right direction?
NEW YORK JETS
In the NFL things can change rather quickly. Just ask the New York Jets. They were one win away from making the playoffs back in 2015 and it's been a downward spiral ever since. After collapsing in 2016 and the loss of several veterans in the offseason, New York has some major issues to address moving forward.
