AFC East has early round robin

The first month of the season will go a long way towards deciding the freshly re-loaded AFC East.

The Bills, Jets, Dolphins, and Patriots open the season with three divisional games each in the season’s first four weeks.  Then the division gets a long vacation from one another.

After the round robin is over, there won’t be another AFC East divisional game until the Jets and Patriots play on Monday Night in Week Thirteen. 

A few other AFC East schedule notes

1. Beware fantasy owners: The Patriots’ final five games are cold weather outdoor games. 

2. The Dolphins open with two road games. It’s the first time they’ve done that since 1988. Other teams opening with two road games include the Ravens and Cardinals.

3. The Jets open with two home games in their new stadium. (Against Baltimore and New England.)  It’s the first time in franchise history that’s happen. The Titans are Redskins also open on a two-game homestand.

4. The Bills finish the season with three straight division games.

    Geeze Rosenthal you continue to constantly make retarded statements related to the Patriots.
    The Pats are a cold weather team that lives in the cold weather and has had many many great games in rain, snow, below freezing temps etc.
    Florio you really should not let this guy write anything about the Pats, a team he knows little about and even less regarding the fan base.

  2. “1. Beware fantasy owners: The Patriots’ final five games are cold weather outdoor games. ”
    boo hoo the Jets entire second half of the season is cold weather outdoor games.

  3. 1. Beware fantasy owners: The Patriots’ final five games are cold weather outdoor games.
    The will also be playing with an oval shaped brown ball they call a “football”……
    gregg,
    it snowed during the Oct 18 Pats-Titans games.
    That game was 45-0 at halftime during near white-out conditions.
    They know how to play in the cold weather

  4. HarrisonHits,
    It’s not about winning or losing. The Patriots (as with all teams) put up worse numbers in the cold weather. You just shouldn’t expect Tom Brady to put up 350 yards in week 15 in the cold weather with potential snow or 50+ mile per hour winds.
    I love the Pats, but it’s just a fact of life. Outdoors causes numbers to go down.

  5. “3. The Jets open with two home games in their new stadium. (Against Baltimore and New England.) It’s the first time in franchise history that’s happen. The Titans are Redskins also open on a two-game homestand.”
    Rosenthal pulled an Emmit Smith on us for point three.

  6. phins schedule is pretty brutal early on but if they can survive it their last 6 games include games against the raiders, bills, lions and browns……….and the jets, who will be totally de-railed by then because, in an effort for even MORE publicity, Mark sanchez is going to suffer a throat injury during a hotdog eating contest with Kobayashi at the halftime of the Thanksgiving day game…..of course he will lose that too. you know, cause he sucks and so do the Jets.

  7. FrankyFiveFingers: The Jets are going to cruise right over the Dolphins this year. You don’t have Ginn to get you those cheap returns this year. We’ll see if we can’t help eliminate the Fins from the playoffs as early as possible this year.

  8. The Jets wont beat the Dolphins this year. The Dolphins have won the last three meetings. Plus, it will be hard to win with all the broken legs the Jets will have after they fall off their high horse.
