Every NFL team wants to end up No. 1 out of 32, but the journey often begins by figuring out how to be No. 1 out of four. So as training camps get underway, it's time to ponder the state of affairs in each division.

The Miami Dolphins missed the playoffs last season but impressed many by winning their final six games.

From the Patriots and Dolphins battling as favorites to the Bills and Jets hoping to solve quarterback issues and emerge as sleepers, the AFC East is full of interesting possibilities.
