Over the next week, The Sun's Jamison Hensley gives his predictions on how each of the NFL divisions will unfold this season. As always, this is not an exact science.

AFC EAST

1. Miami Dolphins: Everyone thinks the Jets will be the team that unseats the Patriots. But the team to fear is the Dolphins, who are primed to make a run this season with the addition of Marshall, the return of a healthy RB Ronnie Brown and the development of QB Chad Henne.

2. New England Patriots: Tom Brady will have the offense clicking. The defense, though, could be going through a transition phase. The loss of CB Leigh Bodden forces New England to start one of the youngest cornerback tandems (Darius Butler and Devin McCourty).

3. New York Jets: This could be the most overrated team in the NFL. Defenses will force quarterback Mark Sanchez to beat them. He's an interception machine (20 picks last season).

4. Buffalo Bills: Clearly the worst team in the division. Unproven quarterback plus a bad offensive line equals a top-five pick in the draft.
