In its NFL preview issue, ESPN The Magazine makes a pretty bold prediction in the AFC East.

Using projections from Pro Football Focus, the Miami Dolphins are picked to sit atop the division with a 10-6 record. The New England Patriots, in their game-by-game breakdown, wind up second at 9-7 and just a 45.1 percent chance of making the playoffs.

Pro Football Focus picks the Patriots to win all of their home games, but just one -- a Week 1 visit to Buffalo -- of their road contests.

The New York Jets, you will be delighted to hear, project to go 4-12.
