Ranking the Raiders best coaching candidates to replace Jon

The Patriots last season made it 10 consecutive AFC Easttitles on their way to winning another Super Bowl. In 2019, they will attempt to finish first in the division for the 17th time in Aqib Talib Jersey  the 19 years of the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era.

New England, though, actually showed some vulnerability before getting things perfect in the playoffs, as its 11-5 record was its "worst" in nine seasons. The NFL's reigning dynasty still won the East by four games. Will the competition get better enough to make the Patriots sweat?


Based on SN's picks for the entire 2019 season, here are our predictions for the AFC East.

NFL predictions 2019: AFC EastBuffalo Bills

The Bills have worked to improve the offensive line and skill positions around second-yearquarterback Josh Allen. They also have playmakers on every level of the defense, with rookie first-round tackle Ed Oliver serving as the latest addition.

The jury onhow Buffalocan complement  Joseph Noteboom Jersey those strengthswith the running game and more competent,efficient pa sing from Allen. Even though Sean McDermottstill has a rebuilding team, there's a lot of pre sure on thecoachto Jalen Ramsey Jersey  lead a rebound season after going from a wild-card playoff berth to 6-10.

Miami Dolphins

Rookiecoach Brian Flores arriveswith positive energy, and he will need all of it as he is tasked with . The Dolphins have been depleted of much of theirtalent on both sides of the ball, especially on the offensive and defensive lines.

Flores has two makeshift quarterback options in Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen. Miami will need to get much worse than7-9 before it can get better.

New England Patriots

The Patriotslost some key players, led by tight end Rob Gronkowski (retirement) and defensive end  Brandin Cooks Jersey Trey Flowers (free agency). But they also at running back and wide receiver, and they remain strong in their defensive back seven.

Starting from the top of the NFL world again, not picking the Patriotsto repeat again with Brady and Belichick is a futile exercise. The champions shouldget overtheir weak division hurdle with comfort andremainon the short list of teams capable of winning the AFC.

New York Jets

The Jets now have newcoach Adam Gase overseeing their offensewith Sam Darnold getting newfound support from Le'Veon Bell. Gregg Williams takes over the defense, with Quinnen Williams and C.J. Mosley boosting his front seven.

Former general manager Mike Maccagnan won't be there to see the fruits of his labor, but his player acquisition work has New York from4-12 aftersignificant upgrades in talent at key positions.

With 13 wins, the Patriots will jump higher in thestandings to their usual standards, while the Bills and Dolphins will take a combined six-victory hit. The leaves the door open for the Jets to contend for an AFC wild-card spot as they learn how to win more close games underGase.

With Brady around and still playing at a high level, finishing second is no slouch here. With Allen needing more development and the Dolphins likely needing to find their next Johnny Hekker Jersey  QB answer in the 2020 NFL Draft, Darnold makes the Jetstheteam in this division with the next-best quarterback.
