New England Patriots: Expected to dominate the AFC East once again, the Patriots have one of the easier regular-season schedules in the 2018 season. Considering that they face the Dolphins, Jets and Bills for six games each year, almost guarantees them a playoff spot as division champs. Those three opponents rank, collectively the lowest in all of football. As for the draft, they did pick up some help. They picked up T Isaiah Wynn with the 23rd pick in the draft and will help fill in the offensive line to protect Tom Brady. They also got RB Sony Michel from Georgia with the 31st pick. Michel is much more explosive than Dion Lewis, only time will tell if they filled the hole left by Nate Solder’s departure. Many are already comparing him to the Saints’ RB Alvin Kamara.
New Orleans Saint: I like this team to win their division. Fully aware how tough this division is with the Panthers, Bucs and Falcons to contend with but I feel this is the most complete team at this stage. The Saints got some bad news when leading rusher Mark Ingram was suspended the first four games of 2018. Of course this is a major blow to their chances. But the Saints have reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara. I think they need to find a running mate as I don’t think Kamara can carry the load by himself.
