2019 NFL Over Under Win Total Predictions For AFC East Division
The NFL is well into the offseason, but it is now time to start looking at the win predictions for each team next season. Let’s start with the win total predictions for AFC East division. We will look into what their win total is set at, and if they will go above or below that number. There are many questions marks around many of the AFC East teams but a lot of changes in this division has it set for a bright future, but some of those questions will have to wait until after the draft to answer.
New England Patriots (11.0)
Last season the New England Patriots stood above the rest on their way to a sixth Super Bowl Championship. The Patriots posted an 11-5 record along with winning the AFC East, AFC Championship and the Super Bowl.
Vegas has the Pats at the 11 win mark, which they have proven they can still get it done only winning 11 games in a regular season. Which as long as Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, New England has a great shot to hit 11 wins.
The major change for New England, besides coaching staff changes, is the retirement of Tight End Rob Gronkowski who has been Tom Brady’s biggest target. Julian Edelman becomes the star target for the Patriots.
New England has a great shot to hit 11 wins once again, as long as they have Tom Terrific. Over 11 is a good pick here.
New York Jets (7.0)
Its a new era in New York, the Jets may have made one of the biggest moves in the NFL in a long time as they added star running back Le’Veon Bell in free agency. However great the addition may be, the real question is can Sam Darnold take his game a step further or even two steps as he had an up and down rookie campaign.
Was Bell really worth it, he might have a tougher time then he did in Pittsburgh, as the Jets line is not as strong as the Steelers line Bell was running behind for five and a half seasons with him sitting out all of last season? Can Darnold become the star QB the Jets were hoping for when they drafted him?
The Jets are coming off a 6-10 season and haven’t made the playoffs since the 2010 season, they came close in 2015 finishing 10-6, but didn’t make the playoffs. New Head man Adam Gase will look to return the Jets to the postseason. Gase went 23-26 in three seasons with fellow AFC East team the Miami Dolphins including a Wild card birth his first season in Miami.
If Darnold continues to struggle then this team will finish with less than seven wins. Under 7 is a good pick here.
Buffalo Bills (6.0)
The Bills finished 6-10 in 2018 a season after making the playoffs for the first time since 1999. If the Bills want to get back to the level then they are going to have to keep their quarterback healthy. Josh Allen enters his second season in the league and showed bright signs in a limited role.
Nathan Peterman was not the answer and was quickly released, and the reigns returned to Allen, who finished with over 2,000 passing yards and threw for 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Can the Bills return to the level they played at in 2017?
Its year three with coach Sean McDermott, and with some big adds in free agency Allen has plenty of weapons around him including running backs LeSean Mccoy who will be paired with newly acquired Frank Gore. Along with receivers Cole Beasley and John Brown. The Bills have the tools they need to compete in the AFC East, can they get the job done? It’s going to be a tough job, but over 6 is a good play.
Miami Dolphins (5.0)
The Dolphins finished 2018 at 7-9 and Adam Gase is now coaching the Jets, so the Dolphins poached former New England defensive coordinator Brian Flores to be their new head man. The only real impactful moment in 2018 was the Dolphins improbable win over the Patriots in week 14 in dramatic fashion.
The Dolphins have plenty of new faces, including at quarterback as Ryan Tannehill is gone, and the Dolphins will look to Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, unless their recent trade pickup Josh Rosen from the Arizona Cardinals is the move for them. Frank Gore is gone, along with lots of change at the receiver position and the Dolphins look like a completely different team.
Danny Amendola hung up the cleats, so it’s the Kenny Stills and Devante Parker show in Miami. It’s hard to see the Dolphins winning more than five games this coming season. Under 5 is a lock in this one.
