    Sean McDermott: You can't 'be a one-sided head coach and be effective'

This is a straightforward division to forecast, as New England is the clear-cut Super Bowl favorite while the Jets are the longest of long shots. Cross conference pairings with the capable NFC South and intra conference matchups against the AFC West should preclude the AFC East from producing a wildcard team in 2017. Final division standings predictions: 1. New England Patriots Head coach Bill Belichick, offensive
