The AFC East standings through Week 10 are not exactly like everyone predicted before the season. Following the Miami Dolphins’ win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, along with the Buffalo Bills’ loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the AFC East standings shifted to put Miami on top while the Bills fell to third place.
The New York Jets stayed in the second position, despite the movement of the Dolphins and Bills. The New England Patriots, who, like the Jets, are on their bye week, continue to sit in the fourth spot. The division, however, is the only one in the league with all four teams above .500 on the year.
The Dolphins are 7-3, the Jets and Bills are both 6-3, and the Patriots are 5-4. New York slides ahead of the Bills after beating them head-to-head earlier in the year.
Currently, the AFC playoff picture has the Dolphins in the second-seed position, just behind the 7-2 Kansas City Chiefs. The Jets are the fifth seed, holding the first Wild Card spot. The Bills are just behind them in the sixth spot. After the Los Angeles Chargers lost on Sunday, the Patriots are now in the seventh spot. All four AFC East teams are in a postseason position now.
