We are entering the final weeks of another successful year predicting AFC East games. Our record is 27-9 entering Week 13, and we intend to finish strong in December.
Let’s get to the picks.
New England Patriots (8-3) at Miami Dolphins (5-6), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: Miami’s pass defense and thin secondary should be exploited by New England, which is scoring points at an amazing clip. The Patriots clinch yet another AFC East title in Miami this weekend.
Pick: New England, 31-17
Arizona Cardinals (4-7) at New York Jets (4-7), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: The Cardinals have lost an NFL-high seven straight games. If New York can’t beat this struggling squad at home, the Jets are even worse than I thought.
Picks: Jets, 21-14
Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9) at Buffalo Bills (4-7), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: The Bills will see a familiar face in former Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne. He’s had success against Buffalo in the past, but not this week with the Jaguars.
Pick: Bills, 24-20
Last week: 2-1
Comment: Stellar all the way through.
