Reviewing the current status of the AFC playoff teams

Former Steelers and Jets offensive lineman Willie Colon knows the teams of the AFC well. So when we had Willie in studio for PFT Live recently, we had him participate in an effort to assess where last year’s AFC playoff teams currently stand.

Arrow up, arrow down, or arrow flat were the categories for the Patriots, Chiefs, Steelers, Texans, Raiders, and Dolphins.

These aren’t predictions for 2017; instead, they represent an assessment of where each team is in comparison to last season.

To hear what Willie and I had to say, check out the video. And check out PFT Live every weekday from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Radio, and from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. ET on NBCSN.

  1. Miami is definitely on the rise. A ten win season and playoffs in a rookie head coaches first year is very impressive. And with all the offseson acquisitions we have only improved. I’m not saying we will unseat NE this year, but it’s coming. Atlanta showed the blue print as to how to expose their weak defense and there will be blood in the water this year. We will for sure get back to splitting with NE this year and next eyar we will sweep them.

  2. Well. I agree Gase is a good H. Coach, and the Dolphins look like they are up and coming. But they haven’t done anything yet, and it takes more than 1 okay year.

    Atlanta only put up 21 points on the Patriots Defense. Considering they were putting up 40 on everyone else, including 36 on the Seahawks it’s a bit of a stretch to call them “weak” and N.E. has added a lot of talent on Defense, and a ton on offense.

    I wonder if the Dolphins recent stadium renovations, with more shade and a cooler field temperature has taken away one of their advantages. teams playing there didn’t seem as tired out by the end of game as I’ve seen in the past. Just a thought.

  3. No East Coast homers here right? It’s all good, proving the homers wrong is half the pleasure. Wish we could see what these scmucks prediction of the Raiders was last year. They should open their prognostications with their past predictions.
