2015 NFL Football Betting – AFC East Preview

Posted by Stan Simmons on 7/6/2015 9:36:54 PM

The NFL season is soon to become the main conversation topic in American sports. Training camp is not too far away, and neither is the preseason. As teams prepare for camp, how does the AFC East shape up?

AFC East Preview

This is a division which has been imbalanced for a long time, and is probably going to continue to be that way. It’s true that the New York Jets have a new head coach, Todd Bowles, a person who is considered one of the rising stars in the profession and a man who could positively change the culture surrounding the Jets as an organization. However, he is, like his predecessor, Rex Ryan, a coach who pays attention to defense more than offense. The Jets have regularly fielded good defenses but have been unable to develop a strong offense. This trend might be reversed in the long run, but in year one under Bowles, it’s very hard to expect a complete remake of the Jets’ offense. This team will probably struggle in 2015 even if Bowles is the real deal. It will take time for more changes to take root.

In Miami, the Dolphins have Ndamukong Suh, but their issues have generally resided on the offensive side of the ball. Ryan Tannehill has not had a strong running back next to him, but that doesn’t entirely excuse the ways in which the Dolphins’ offense has faltered in December in both 2013 and last season in 2014. Miami’s offense has to be able to function outdoors in cold-weather games late in the season. Until it does, the Dolphins are going to fail to make the playoffs and frustrate their fans.

The most intriguing team in the AFC East is the other one in New York State, the other one with a new coach. Rex Ryan left the Jets to go to the Buffalo Bills. He’s going to keep Buffalo’s defense in a good position – that’s been the rock for the Bills over the past few years – but much like the Jets, the Bills’ offense has lacked the answer at quarterback and has not been able to throw the ball in such a way that opposing defenses will respect the need to cover the whole field. E.J. Manuel was injured in his first season in 2013, but last year, he did not make forward strides at the position. It’s true that young quarterbacks need time in the NFL, but anytime a quarterback regresses the way Manuel did last season, it’s a definite sign of distress for an organization. Ryan could not improve Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith with the Jets, so what would suggest that he’s going to fix Manuel now in Buffalo with a new team? Matt Cassel is also in the mix at quarterback, but he’s not a long-term solution. The Bills would love to see Manuel step forward, but that’s probably not going to happen.

This leaves one team, the team that has owned this division for a decade, the New England Patriots. The defending Super Bowl champions won’t have Tom Brady for the first four games of the season, but as long as they can split those four games, they should be fine. This is the best team in the AFC, with the best quarterback in football and also the best coach. In the AFC West or North, the Pats would get tested more, but in the East, they have no real challenger.
