The AFC East has been a pleasant surprise in some instances and downright disappointing in other areas. In the first two weeks, every team has a win and by the end of the day, three teams will have at least two wins. Half of the division takes on NFC South teams. The New England Patriots host the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the other game, Miami takes on the Atlanta Falcons in a home game. While they battle, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets are having a nice contest between rookie quarterbacks.
Tom Brady has been having a lot of trouble in the passing game. The development of the receivers has been slow, yet they find themselves (2-0). The offense has not looked in sync, but they have been a stalwart defensively. It may have something to do with who they played, but are only giving up 169 yards per game against the pass.
Tampa Bay had a legitimate chance to be (2-0) but unlike the Patriots, they didn’t make the plays in the final minute to win. That’s the only difference. Offensively, they have looked worse than New England in the passing game, and it makes no sense as to why. Tampa would rather bicker than figure out ways to win games, and that’s always a problem.
It’s hard to see the Patriots pulling out another victory in similar fashion, but if it’s a close game, do you expect the Buccaneers to make the critical play. It was only preseason, but Brady shredded that defense without Darrelle Revis. Will Revis make that much of a difference on Sunday?
