Walker's AFC East picks
By James Walker
The AFC East blog still has it going making picks. I'm back to stellar this week with an overall record of 15-2 predicting division games.
We have a tricky slate of AFC East games. Let's get right to it.
St. Louis Rams (3-2) at Miami Dolphins (2-3), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: The Dolphins are coming off a big road win and need to protect the home turf. The Rams had 10 days to prepare, but the Dolphins grind out this one before the bye week.
Pick: Dolphins, 17-14
Indianapolis Colts (2-2) at New York Jets (2-3), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: This is a must-win game if the Jets are to keep their season afloat. It’s rare that a team loses three home games in a row.
Pick: Jets, 16-13
Buffalo Bills (2-3) at Arizona Cardinals (4-1), Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET
Skinny: The Bills match up well against Arizona in several areas, particularly with the Cardinals’ offensive line struggling and injuries at tailback. But I don’t feel comfortable picking the Bills right now with the way they are playing.
Pick: Cardinals, 23-17
New England Patriots (3-2) at Seattle Seahawks (3-2), Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET
Skinny: The Patriots are playing extremely fast, which they will need to do in this tough road game. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be the difference against Seattle rookie Russell Wilson.
Pick: Patriots, 30-21
