With Tom Brady in the fold for a full 16-game slate and motivated to put a trying off-season behind him, the Patriots are set to cruise to their seventh consecutive AFC title, right? Not so fast. The Bills and Jets both made coaching changes with slowing down the defending champs and their unflappable leader at top of mind, and the Dolphins made the biggest free agency splash of any team in the NFL when they landed quarterback tormentor Ndamukong Suh. The East may still run through Foxboro, but it figures to be far from a cakewalk.

Will Miami's soft September slate set the tone for playoff contention? How Rex Ryan fare against his old team in New York and his longtime nemesis in New England? Greg Bedard has predicted the outcome of every single game of the NFL regular season. Below are his picks for the AFC East.
