Bills GM: Patriots favorites in AFC East 'until somebody beats them'

Bills GM: Patriots favorites in AFC East 'until somebody beats them'”

"The team to beat in the East is the Patriots", Beane said Thursday, according to ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques.

The Patriots have won an astronomical 16 division titles since conference realignment in 2002, and an opposing AFC East general manager is giving them the credit they've earned. "And until somebody beats them, they are the team to beat". Dec 23, 2018; Foxborough, MA: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick head out onto the field to shake hands with the Buffalo Bills after their 24-12 win at Gillette Stadium. "If this goes on for a long time and there is no offseason training or OTAs, we're going to have to meet up and get to work". Oh, and Bledsoe was traded to Buffalo in 2002 and started with the Bills a year after being hit hard but cleanly, and injured by Mo Lewis of the Jets, setting in motion almost 19 years of QB stability for the Patriots. The Patriots also went 3-1 in the four games that Brady was suspended for in 2016.

Many pundits are already willing to crown the Buffalo Bills as the presumptive champion of the AFC East for the 2020 season, given the arrival of Stefon Diggs and departure of Tom Brady from the New England Patriots.

However, it has since emerged that the Bucs had long cast their eyes on Brady and were prepared to pull out all the stops to convince the former MI alumni to swap New England's rigid winters for Florida's sunshine. "You look at what Bill Belichick did in 2008; they got robbed of a playoff".

- Matt Cassel: 15 games in 2008, when Brady injured his knee in the first game of the season.

"So I think it's amusing and comical that people are writing them off and labeling - whether it's us or another team - as the team to beat in the East".

Even if the Patriots remain in the NFL's upper echelon next season, there is plenty of reason to believe the Bills will be right there with them. Their biggest losses in free agency - defensive linemen Jordan Phillips and Shaq Lawson - have been offset with the additions of Mario Addison and Vernon Butler. You would think that's enough to beat the Patriots, but you never know with Belichick on the other side.
