Walker's AFC East picks
By James Walker
The AFC East blog is back for another round of picks.
We have a stellar (wink, wink) record of 21-6 at the midpoint of the season. This week starts the second half of the season, and we are looking to continue our hot streak.
Here are our the AFC East predictions for Week 10:
Buffalo Bills (3-5) at New England Patriots (5-3)
Skinny: This is one of the easiest picks of the season. The Patriots are healthy after the bye and coming off two weeks of preparation. The Bills are down two cornerbacks and haven’t won in New England in 11 years. The Patriots are a safe pick.
Pick: Patriots, 30-14
Tennessee Titans (3-6) at Miami Dolphins (4-4)
Skinny: This smells like a trap game for Miami, which is coming off a tough loss, faces a struggling opponent and has a Thursday game against Buffalo just five days later. This will be a test of Miami’s maturity, but the Dolphins still prevail at home.
Pick: Dolphins, 20-10
New York Jets (3-5) at Seattle Seahawks (5-4)
Skinny: The good news is New York had two weeks to prepare for the Seahawks. The bad news is the Patriots and Packers couldn’t win in Seattle. I don’t see how a struggling team like the Jets can.
Pick: Seahawks, 23-14
Last week: 1-1
Comment: Pretty easy week. I’m expecting a 3-0 sweep.
