AFC East enjoying comforts of home

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Inspired by a post by Pat Yasinskas about the NFC South's dominance at home, here is a look at how the AFC East is faring and each team's remaining home schedule.

The NFC South is an absurd 17-1 at home. The NFC East has the next-best record at 14-4, while the AFC East is a half-game worse at 14-5.

Three AFC East teams have a single home loss, with each of those against a divisional rival.

None of the AFC East teams have a winning road record, but all have two victories. The Buffalo Bills, the only one below .500, are 2-3 away from Ralph Wilson Stadium after Sunday's 20-10 loss at New England.

Here are the AFC East home records and remaining opponents and their road records:

New England Patriots (4-1): They're allowing an average of 16.2 points per game at home, lowest in the division.

  • New York Jets (2-2)

  • Pittsburgh Steelers (4-1)

  • Arizona Cardinals (2-3)

New York Jets (4-1): They've scored an NFL-high 167 points at home, 17 more than the next-most prolific team, the New York Giants. The Jets also have a 72-point differential, second only to the Giants' 83-point cushion.

  • Denver Broncos (2-2)

  • Buffalo Bills (2-3)

  • Miami Dolphins (2-2)

Miami Dolphins (3-2): The lone AFC East team with more than one home loss actually is getting outscored in Dolphin Stadium 92-90. That's an average of just 18 points scored per home game.

  • Oakland Raiders (1-3)

  • New England Patriots (2-2)

  • San Francisco 49ers (1-2)

Buffalo Bills (3-1): They're the only AFC East club with four home dates left, but their Dec. 7 game against the Dolphins will be played in Toronto. The Bills are averaging 24.5 points per home game, second in the division to the Jets' 33.4 points.

  • Cleveland Browns (2-2)

  • San Francisco 49ers (1-2)

  • Miami Dolphins (2-2)

  • New England Patriots (2-2)
