The AFC East blog had a banner Week 14 by going 4-0. That brings our total record up to a stellar 34-9 predicting division games this season.

We aim to finish strong. Let’s get to another round of AFC East picks for Week 15:

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11) at Miami Dolphins (5-8), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET

Skinny: The Jaguars might be the worst team in the NFL. The Dolphins are still playing hard and that will be enough this week. Quarterback Chad Henne doesn't make a triumphant return to Miami.

Pick: Dolphins, 23-14

Seattle Seahawks (8-5) vs. Buffalo Bills (5-8) in Toronto, Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET

Skinny: C.J. Spiller will be forced to get carries this week, which is a good thing and could keep Buffalo in the game. But Seattle is just too physical on both sides of the football.

Pick: Seahawks, 21-17

San Francisco 49ers (9-3-1) at New England Patriots (10-3), Sunday at 8:20 p.m. ET

Skinny: The Patriots complete their toughest two-game stretch of the season against a physical 49ers team. New England is coming off a short week, but also is clicking on all cylinders. San Francisco's long road trip and New England’s home-field advantage plays a factor in this one.

Pick: Patriots, 28-20

New York Jets (6-7) at Tennessee Titans (4-9), Monday at 8:30 p.m. ET

Skinny: Don't be fooled by the Titans' record, because they are a little better than you think. The Jets have won the past two weeks with smoke and mirrors. Their playoff chances end this week.

Pick: Titans, 17-14

Last week: 4-0

Overall: 34-9
