That team of course is the New York Jets, and since Rex Ryan has been their head coach, they have been one of the major focal points of the entire NFL. That surely is going to remain the same for 2011, and they are a team that is charging head to get to that elusive Super Bowl. They’ve enjoyed a lot of success under Ryan and even beat the Patriots in the playoffs last season, but haven’t been able to go all the way yet.
The Patriots though haven’t been sitting idly by, either. Actually, thanks to some of the moves they have made in preparation for the 2011 season, they look to be the odds-on favorites with NFL football picks and bettors to go all the way. That’s because a team that was already good has seemingly added a few more crucial players.
They brought in disruptive defensive line player Albert Haynesworth, and flashy wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, and they didn’t give up much for either man. Both of those guys are risks, but they both have a lot to prove and will be eager to get it done for the Patriots.
Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills are trying to better themselves, and the Miami Dolphins are in a state of transition as they try to figure out the future as well. As you prepare your early NFL football picks, one look at the AFC East gives you two real Super Bowl threats, the Patriots and the Jets, and that’s always exciting.
