Walker's AFC East picks
By James Walker
The AFC East blog is wrapping up a stellar season of division picks. We went 3-1 last week to improve our record to 37-10 overall.
Let's take a look at the Week 16 selections:
New England Patriots (10-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-12), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: This might be the easiest pick I've made all season. The Patriots are angry after losing last week, and the Jaguars may be the worst team in the league. Easy blowout.
Pick: Patriots, 35-10
San Diego Chargers (5-9) at New York Jets (6-8)
Skinny: This is a tricky one. The Chargers have enough talent to surprise teams on occasion, but you don’t know which team will show up. The Jets are offensively inept, but I’m going with New York quarterback Greg McElroy getting his second win of the season in a low-scoring game.
Pick: Jets, 16-14
Buffalo Bills (5-9) at Miami Dolphins (6-8), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
Skinny: The Dolphins are banged up. But I cannot pick the Bills after what I saw from them last week.
Pick: Dolphins, 23-20
Last week: 3-1
Comment: Don't hate. Congratulate.
