AFC East for bettors

I’m not a betting man but here are my predictions for this week’s AFC East games for those who are:

  • Buffalo Bills 28, Oakland Raiders 20 – I don’t think the Bills play as good as they did last week but combine a pumped up crowd with a Raiders team traveling cross-country after a short week and I see the Bills going 2-0 for the first time since 2008.
  • New York Jets 31, Jacksonville Jaguars 10 – The Jaguars are a mess and have lost their best offensive player, Marcedes Lewis, for the game.  The Jets have all their guys going, including Santonio Holmes.  Super Bowl contenders don’t lose games like this and the Jets want to be Super Bowl contenders.
  • Houston Texans 35, Miami Dolphins 21 – The Dolphins looked bad on defense Monday night and I expect more of the same on Sunday with the vaunted Texans offense led by Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson.
  • New England Patriots 27, San Diego Chargers 24 – Expect a heavy dose of Mike Tolbert from the Chargers and Philip Rivers is up to task with playing play for play with Brady, especially in September, but in the end Brady gets it done.
