As part of ESPN.com's "NFL Preview 2009" package, the company asked 16 of its writers to forecast the season, everything from playoff teams to MVP to rookie of the year.
Some AFC East highlights from the survey:
The New England Patriots were unanimously selected to win the division.
Five writers had the Patriots winning the AFC championship, and all of them picked the Patriots to win the Super Bowl, too. Seven writers, including yours truly, picked the Pittsburgh Steelers to repeat.
No AFC East players were chosen to win defensive rookie of the year.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady received six votes for MVP.
Brady received two votes for offensive player of the year, while Patriots receiver Randy Moss had one.
No AFC East players were chosen to win defensive player of the year.
Two writers predicted Bill Belichick would be coach of the year.
