I will be... FP'd

Here's the original Story

In the tight AFC race, determining a winner is difficult. However, these five statistics could go a long way toward deciding who will emerge.
Category No. 1 rank No. 2 rank No. 3 rank
Yards/pass attempt Dolphins Patriots Jets
Rushing defense Jets Dolphins Patriots
Scoring defense Dolphins Patriots Jets
Turnover differential Dolphins Jets Patriots
Winning margin Jets Patriots Dolphins

The combined analysis says that Miami should win this division. Of these five categories, the Dolphins lead in three: Yards per pass attempt, scoring defense and turnover differential. Those three areas cover both offensive and defensive strengths and indicate that the Dolphins not only have more balance among the three leaders but also more punch in this three-game AFC East sprint.

 

 

Overall he makes a very good statistical breakdown about the AFC EAST divisional conquest (not a race...this is not track and field...this is football...a battle ....WAR on the grid iron).
