AFC East: 'Super' Patriots stay on top [10:43 AM]
ESPN reports: I had a hard time picking the Buffalo Bills last, but they are in a strong division. I know Gregg Williams feels good about his team. They had several new players last year. Now they have added Bledsoe, who I think is a steal. He gives them instant credibility at QB and makes the Bills a completely different team offensively. If Moulds doesn't catch 100 balls, I'll be shocked. The Bills defense runs around and has very physical corners. They will win seven-plus games and could easily win 10 games and battle for first place.
