The New England Patriots, who host the Denver Broncos, are the only AFC East team favored this week. So which AFC East underdog is most likely to win in Week 5: the Buffalo Bills (2-2), Miami Dolphins (1-3) or New York Jets (2-2)?

Will it be Buffalo? The Bills travel to the West Coast to face a physical San Francisco 49ers (3-1) team. It’s the same 49ers team that pounded the Jets, 34-0, last week. Can the Bills pull the upset?

What about the Dolphins? Miami has played tough football the past two weeks but lost a pair of overtime games. Is Sunday’s road game against the Cincinnati Bengals (3-1) the chance for Miami to get over the hump and into the win column?

Finally, we have the Jets. New York will host the undefeated Houston Texans (4-0), who might be the best team in the AFC right now. The Jets will try to win without Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis and No. 1 receiver Santonio Holmes, who are both out with season-ending injuries.

Using our SportsNation poll, vote on which AFC East underdog is most likely to pull an upset in Week 5. You can also share your thoughts in the comment section below.
