AFC EAST PREVIEW

Everyone’s still chasing the New England Patriots in the AFC East. Many of the faces change every year in Miami, Buffalo, New York — and even in Foxborough — but Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are constants in the division. So are AFC East titles for the Patriots. They’ve won nine in a row, and 14 of the last 15. And, it certainly appears they’re an excellent bet to add to that haul this season.
