    I seem to recall that the AFC East was supposed to be among the easiest divisions in the league year after year. :D

    It *is* one of the easiest divisions. It's just that there's the Patriots, and not much else. The Pats are responsible for 6 of those 8, with the Jets (!) being the other two.
