The start of the 2010 NFL season is near, and the AFC East is one of the most interesting conferences in the league, which is why we have created a brief preview concerning what you can expect from Miami, Buffalo, New England and New York.
Dolphins: This team won the conference back in 2008, but last year they were disappointing, finishing with a 7-9 record.
They were plagued by injuries, affecting key players such as Ronnie Brown and Chad Pennington, but now seems to be a bit better for Miami, as they added Brandon Marshall, a very proficient wide receiver that is going to serve as the perfect complement for Pennington, who will probably be in great shape by the time of their first match against the Jets on September 13.
But in despite of the arrival of Marshall, they still need to work out a few things and I think they will finish with a 6-10 record.

Bills: This is certainly one of the worst teams in the NFL, and they will certainly have to decide who is going to be their starting quarterback, as there is a fierce battle between Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick concerning such job, with Edwards being the one with the most chances.
They finished 6-10 last year, and with rumors about moving the franchise to Toronto, things certainly don’t look good for them. I will say they will end up with a 7-9 if they can finally get their act together.
Jets: To me this is the current best team of the conference, as they count with a surprisingly good quarterback in Mark Sanchez, and they made key additions in LaDainian Tomlinson, Santonio Holmes, Antonio Cromartie, Nick Folk and Jason Taylor, though they lost Leon Washington to the Seahawks, which means that the running back pressure is definitely in Tomlinson’s back. I think this team possesses an explosive offensive line and might end up the regular season with a 7-9 record.
Patriots: This is another promising team in despite of losing some key players, and even though Tom Brady didn’t play at his best the past season, it is an undeniable fact that he is one of the game’s most effective signal callers, and with the addition of some powerful tight ends in Alge Crumpler and Aaron Hernandez and new wide receivers in Taylor Price and 7-time Pro Bowler Torry Holt, Brady has definitely the arsenal of weapons he needs. I’ll say the Pats will finish with a 10-6 record.
