A new team is currently in first place in the final AFC East standings in Week 2 as a familiar one continues to be in the bottom of the division.
Week 2 of the regular season is officially in the books. Believe it or not, the Miami Dolphins are now on top of the division and are one of many teams that are currently undefeated so far this season. In case you didn’t know, the Dolphins didn’t play in Week 1 due to Hurricane Irma as it got postponed for a later date.
The Buffalo Bills were brought back down to reality this week and lost a boring and uninspired game to the Carolina Panthers. They failed to score a single touchdown and lost 3-9 to the Panthers.
Another team came back this week and proved that even though they got embarrassed in Week 1, they’re still one of the top contenders in the NFL. That’s right, the New England Patriots silenced any and all critics with a 36-20 beatdown of the New Orleans Saints.
Below you’ll find the final Week 2 AFC standings as per Sports Illustrated. As usual and most likely a common theme this season, you’ll find a familiar team dead last in the division:
Unfortunately, the New York Jets got completely dropped in their Week 2 road game against the Oakland Raiders. The Jets actually had a shot at pulling off the biggest upset of the week but ultimately lost as things got out of control due to making some dumb mistakes.

The Jets lost 45-20 as things got so bad, Marshawn Lynch made headlines for dancing on the sideline since everyone was having so much fun at the expense of the Jets.
Either way, when it mattered most, the Jets failed to step up and deliver. Awe well, there’s always next week.
Heading into Week 3, the Dolphins hit the road to face the Jets in a division rivalry game, the Bills welcome the Denver Broncos to Ralph Wilson Stadium, and the Patriots welcome the Houston Texans to their home in Gillette Stadium.
