Power Rankings: Who's No. 2 in AFC East?

By James Walker

The AFC East is in a four-way logjam at the top of the latest NFL Power Rankings. Obviously, the reigning AFC champion New England Patriots are still the favorites in the division. But the No. 2 team is a heated debate.

Earlier today, the AFC East blog ranked the Miami Dolphins currently as the second-best team in the division. ESPN’s Power Rankings panel agreed. Miami is the only division team on a two-game winning streak.

Here are ESPN.com’s Power Rankings in the AFC East entering Week 7:
Overall, the division didn’t get much respect this week. Three of the four teams in the AFC East are ranked in the bottom half of the league.

The Bills have a chance to pad their record and improve to 4-3 when they host the Tennessee Titans Sunday. The Patriots will host the Jets in a big division game, and the Dolphins are on a bye week.
