Walker's AFC East picks
By James Walker
Welcome to the final edition of "Walker's AFC East picks."
We will stop our solid run predicting games in the division since most likely there only will be one team — the New England Patriots — in the playoffs. The Patriots will have a first-round bye, which means there will be no games in the AFC East next week.
Here are our picks for Week 17 in the division:
Buffalo Bills (6-9) at New England Patriots (12-3), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: New England has too much to play for and revenge on its mind after losing the first meeting. Easy pick.
Walker's pick: Patriots, 30-17
New York Jets (8-7) at Miami Dolphins (5-10), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: We left it open to our AFC East community to pick the winner of this game. Overwhelmingly, our community picked Miami. So that’s who we are riding with this weekend.
Community pick: Dolphins, 20-10
Last week: 1-2
