After watching the Dolphins dismantlle the Raiders in the 2nd half of yesterday's game, it's hard not to get excited about this team. However, we still have to contend in the AFC East against three tough opponents.

Let's take a look at what the other AFC East teams did this weekend:


After last weeks blowout loss to the New York Jets, the Buffalo Bills rebounded by beating the Chiefs 35-17. The Bills lost Fred Jackson last week to injury, but C.J. Spiller is making people say "Jackson who?" Spiller rushed for 123 yards on 15 carries. Doing the math, that's 8.2 yards per carry. Spiller also had 2 touchdowns. Expect teams to gameplan for Spiller now. You're probably saying it was just a Chiefs bad defense. But Spiller had better stats against a better Jets defense in week one (14 attempts, 169 yards, 1 touchdown). Jackson expects to be back in a few weeks, but if the former first round pick, Spiller, keeps playing like he is, Jackson may be without a starting job.

Ryan Fitzpatrick bounced back with a solid performance: 10/19, 178 yards, and 2 touchdowns. Stevie Johnson and Scott Chandler were the recipiants of Fitzpatricks touchdowns.

The Bills play at the Cleveland Browns next. Expect another exciting day from C.J. Spiller.


After taking off against the Bills last week, the Jets came back down to earth against a great Pittsburgh Steelers team. The Jets were without star defensive player, Darelle Revis. With Revis, the Steelers may have had a harder time moving the ball against the Jets.

Mark Sanchez threw for 138 yards, went 10/27, with one touchdown. Former Steeler, Santonio Holmes caught Sanchez's only touchdown. In my opinion, Sanchez is still inconsitent.

Sanchez really didn't get any help from his running game, which is Sparano's strength (or so he thinks). Tim Tebow got in the action with a 22 yard run on his first play in the game. How soon till fans start chanting, "We Want Tebow!" ?

The Jets play the...Miami Dolphins next! As always, this game is always exciting to watch. Huge rivalry game. You know who I'm picking. PHINS UP!!!


The New England Patriots lost to the Arizona Cardinals. Shocking, I know. This will really hurt my record for game picks.

Tom Brady...was Tom Brady. 316 yards, 28/46, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. Can you guess who caught the touchdown? It's a tight end. No? Rob Gronkowski...what a surprise.

Steven Ridley has been the Patriots primary running back. He rushed for 71 yards on 18 attempts.

Wes Welker did not start against the Cardinals. Julian Edelman started in his place. Welker came off the bench as turned in a great performance, 5 receptions for 95 yards. Still the best slot reciever in the NFL. One has to wonder what is going on in the locker room? The injury to Aaron Hernandez could help Welker see more playing time.

What is surprising is the Patriots defense held Larry Fitzgerald to one catch. ONE CATCH! This did not help me in fantasy.

The Patriots play the Baltimore Ravens next. This shold be a great game to watch on Sunday night.
