It's not shocking, but considering how many people seemed convinced that the Bills and Dolphins were going to really push the Patriots for the division title, it is noteworthy that they're the second team in the league to clinch their division.
Who thought the Bills and Dolphins were going to push the Patriots for the division title?
I'm the biggest Bills fan here, and I knew the Patriots were taking the division. Even if Brady served a 3 game ban.
Chocolo, Fated Reality, Gergoy, and that one silly Dolphin fan on here. =p
In all seriousness, while I don't have references, a number of major sports websites were predicting a tight AFC East race. ESPN's preview is one specific example I remember saying that it would be close.
