SportsNation put together one of those cool, click-and-drag ranker doohickeys.

This time, it wants you to rate the NFL's best passing attacks.

Only 15 teams are available to choose from, but the AFC East gets plenty of love with three candidates.

Here's a copy of the ballot I submitted with the overall poll ranking as of this posting and an explanation for each AFC East club:

1. Indianapolis Colts (1)

2. New Orleans Saints (2)

3. Houston Texans (3)

4. New England Patriots (4): Without the encouraging recent news of Wes Welker's recovery, I would have dropped them a couple pegs. Tom Brady's go-to guy likely won't be 100 percent by the opener, but he sounds far enough along to make an impact. Much like Joey Galloway last year, Torry Holt provides no guarantees opposite Randy Moss, but Brandon Tate or rookie Taylor Price could emerge, too.

5. San Diego Chargers (6)

6. Green Bay Packers (5)

7. Cincinnati Bengals (9)

8. Minnesota Vikings (8)

9. Dallas Cowboys (7)

10. New York Jets (13): Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes and Jerricho Cotchery are a formidable trio. The secret weapon is tight end Dustin Keller, who proved how dangerous he could be with a touchdown reception in all three playoff games. LaDainian Tomlinson provides a receiving threat Mark Sanchez didn't have out of the backfield last year.

11. Philadelphia Eagles (11)

12. Miami Dolphins (14): Brandon Marshall is better than any one receiver the Jets have, but the entire crew isn't as impressive. Brian Hartline showed promise last year, and the Dolphins have two valuable possession receivers in Davone Bess and Greg Camarillo. But their tight ends must be more productive.

13. Baltimore Ravens (10)

14. Washington Redskins (15)

15. Pittsburgh Steelers (12)
