AFC East Roundup: Week 17



Well, the Buffalo Bills are about to play the biggest game of their season. If they beat the Cincinnati Bengals, that clinches the second seed in the AFC at minimum, and gives them a great chance at the one seed and a first round bye. The Miami Dolphins face the New England Patriots in an AFC East matchup this week, while the New York Jets face former QB Geno Smith and the Seahawks. So, let’s get into the news and notes around the division.
