AFC East- 2017 Season

It was, once again, the New England Patriots (11-5) topping all teams in the AFC East. They had one of the best offenses in the league and a defense that did not allow many points. The Buffalo Bills (9-7) managed to earn a playoff berth after finishing second in the division. The Miami Dolphins (6-10) were without QB Ryan Tannehill, and that simply destroyed any chance they had of securing a winning record. Finally, the New York Jets (5-11) struggled, as their quarterback woes continued.
