Only once since 2003 has a team besides the New England Patriots won the AFC East. That was in 2009, when Tom Brady missed the whole season. That alone tells you how much the Patriots dominate this division, and this year will be no different.
1. New England Patriots, Predicted Record: 13-3
The Patriots have been dominate in this division and as long as they have Tom Brady, that trend is likely to continue. For an already incredible offense, the front office added more weapons in the offseason. Brandon Lloyd reunites with his old offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and could be in for a big season. Add him to Brady’s targets that already include Wes Welker, Deion Branch, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. That offense is going to do a lot of damage this year, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Brady throw for 5,000 yards for the second straight season.
