I wanted to send out this reminder to AFC East fans: Soak in this weekend.
The schedule is about to be interrupted for the next two months by nothing but interconference and cross-divisional matchups.
The schedule was front- and back-loaded with divisional games to help keep games relevant late in the season and prevent situations like we saw last year with the Jets. The Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals, with their division titles wrapped up, pulled their starters in Weeks 16 and 17, helping the Jets pick up a couple of easy victories and slip into the playoffs.
To get an idea of when you might see your favorite rivalries resume, here's the rundown of remaining AFC East games for each team:
Week 15 at Miami Dolphins
Week 16 versus New England Patriots
Week 17 at New York Jets
Week 14 at New York Jets
Week 15 versus Buffalo Bills
Week 17 at New England Patriots
