This week I wrap-up my tour of the four divisions in the AFC with my preview and predictions for the AFC East. Picking the winner of this division is bit of a no-brainer considering just how dominant the New England Patriots have been under the guidance of head coach Bill Belichick. He has been at the helm in New England for the past 14 years and while the Patriots went 5-11 way back in 2000 during his first season with the team they have not posted a losing record since then. The most impressive stat besides five Super Bowl appearances and three world titles is 12 seasons of at least 10 wins.
Considering that none of the other three teams in this division have posted a winning season in any of the past three years, its pretty safe to say that New England is going to add another division title to its impressive resume in 2014. The one team that might be able to make some noise in the AFC East is the Miami Dolphins. Much of their success will hinge on the continued development of third-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He has already shown signs of becoming a legitimate franchise quarterback in the NFL and this season will be a key test to see if he can keep progressing in the right direction.
The following is a link to my preview and official picks for the AFC East this season as part of an ongoing series for Doc's Sports.
