AFC East Power Rankings

1. New England Patriots (4-0): Love them or hate them, you have to admire the model of consistency the Patriots have displayed. Just when it looks like they are slipping, they go on the road and beat a tough Atlanta Falcons team.

2. Miami Dolphins (3-1): The Dolphins were humbled on national television in New Orleans. But the Saints are capable of putting a beatdown on just about anyone, playoff-caliber teams not excluded. It will be very interesting to see how Miami responds versus the Ravens on a short week.

3. New York Jets (2-2): I’m not sure the Jets will end up having a better record than the Bills this season, but they have beat them head-to-head, which is why they still get the edge in our power rankings.

4. Buffalo Bills (2-2): Buffalo’s defense dominated in their Week 4 win over the Baltimore Ravens, forcing five Joe Flacco interceptions. Will they begin to show some consistency against the suddenly upstart Cleveland Browns on Thursday night?

Week 4 Picks (Dolphins pick to be revealed later in week)

Cleveland 13, Buffalo 10

New England 24, Cincinnati 23

Atlanta 31, New York Jets 17
