The AFC East has seen plenty of change over the off-season, which could see the Patriots' reign come to an end.

There are a number of storylines to play out in the division, which means it will be one of the most intriguing in the league and well worth keeping an eye on.

BUFFALO BILLS

 

The Bills look set for added improvement as they enter the new NFL season. They finished second in the division behind the Patriots last year but still made it to the playoffs.

Josh Allen should continue his growth and it will be aided by the addition of star wide receiver Stefon Diggs. They're running back stocks have also been bolstered after they drafted Zack Moss in the third round.

If the Patriots dip, like we expect them to, the division is the Bills' for the taking.

Dimers' Pick:
🔥 Bills to win AFC East (+125)

 

MIAMI DOLPHINS

 

2019 wasn't a horrible season for the Dolphins, who managed to show some signs of promise and finished with five wins. They've made some handy off-season additions, including veteran defensive pair Byron Jones and Kyle Van Noy. They also had three first-round picks, headlined by quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

It seems unlikely Tagovailoa will start Week One, however, there is no doubt he will get his opportunity to play as the season progresses.

As a team, the Dolphins look a much more solid unit than years prior. Look for them to improve on their 2019 record and push towards a playoff spot in the near future.

Dimers' Pick:
🔥 Dolphins over 6 regular-season wins (-130)

 

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

 

The Cam Newton era begins in New England, with the Brady-Belichick combination finally reaching its end-point. There were talks that Newton would not be the starting quarterback come Week One, but it seems now he has all but locked in that spot.

The Patriots' defense was the key to them winning AFC East last season, however, that unit will not quite look the same this time around. Kyle Van Noy went to the Dolphins in free agency, while Dont'a Hightower and Patrick Chung have opted out of the 2020 season.

We know the quality of program that Belichick runs, but with a new quarterback and a somewhat depleted defense, it doesn't look like they'll be taking part in the postseason.

Dimers' Pick:
🔥 Patriots to miss the playoffs (+155)

 

NEW YORK JETS

 

Like the Dolphins, the Jets showed signs of promise in 2019 but couldn't quite put it all together on a consistent basis. Sam Darnold looks to be a long-term starting quarterback in the league, and they made some key signings to their offensive line in the form of veterans Connor McGovern and George Fant, and first-round draft pick Mekhi Becton.

The worry for the Jets is that they have a pretty difficult schedule, which includes the Bills and 49ers in the opening two weeks. The Dolphins could very well leap them this year, which means it could be another tough one to watch for New York fans.

Dimers' Pick:
🔥 Jets under 6 regular-season wins (+120)
