Well, it’s a short week, so we want to get you all of the posts you’ve come to expect from PhinNation.com! Last week, every team in the AFC East won. Who can keep the momentum going? Who slips up? We’ll find out soon enough.
New England Patriots (7-2)
The Pats traveled to Pittsburgh and beat the tar out of the Steelers. The final score was no indication of how the game was actually played. The Patriots beat the Steelers from the opening whistle. This week, the Patriots welcome in Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. This is a game that the Pats should win considering how banged up the Colts are. BUT, you never know!
New York Jets (7-2)
The Jets seem to have a knack for getting lucky in 2010. The Browns forced overtime last week and were moving into field goal range when Chancey Stuckey fumbled at the Jets 35 yard line. The Jets ended up winning the game, a game they had no business winning. It’s happened 2 or 3 times this year. But they are 7-2 and are home this week to take on the Houston Texans. The Texans are in desperation mode and must win this game if they hope to make the playoffs. I think this game goes to the Texans.
Miami Dolphins (5-4)
We know they are hurt. We know they are down to their 3rd string QB. But they are above .500 and have a chance to take a BIG step forward in the AFC Playoff race. A win on Thursday and the Dolphins are 6-4 with 10 days to heal up before taking on the Raiders in Oakland. A loss and they will likely need to go 5-1 to finish the year, making the playoffs. A loss doesn’t kill the season, because it’s against a non-AFC opponent.
Buffalo Bills (1-8)
The Bills win, The Bills win! They beat the Lions, so we’ll keep this short. They head to Cincinnati this week to take on the 2-7 Bungles. Talk about your game of the week!
The Dolphins are 2 games out of the AFC East lead and could make up ground on one, if not both of the teams ahead of them this week. A win tomorrow night would be HUGE, especially considering the week they’ve had!
