The AFC East is a lot closer than many people expected when the season started.
The New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins are neck-and-neck with each other for the top spot, as they face off Sunday in their first meeting of the season.
Mary Paoletti on Quick Slants talked about how she doesn’t think Patriots’ fans need to worry about the Dolphins claiming the AFC East title this season.
“Miami is struggling, Buffalo is Buffalo, and the Jets just won’t die,” Paoletti said. “But still I think this will be the Patriots title to lose for the 11th time in 13 years.”
With divisional games more important as the season goes on, Bill Belichick will make sure his team doesn’t overlook those games.
“I love when you go big picture because people have to remember what the division is all about,” Curran said. “Bill Belichick says that is the most important thing first.”
