Welcome to the regular season

Now, AFC East community, we play for keeps.

We are entering Week 1 of the NFL regular season, and I want to be the first to welcome you and thank you for consistently reading with the AFC East blog during another wild offseason.

But enough of exhibitions, projections and what could be and should be. It's finally time to separate the contenders and pretenders. For example, the New York Jets host the Buffalo Bills a week from today. We are covering that game at MetLife Stadium to find out who really is better.

There is never a dull moment in the AFC East. It is going to be a 2012 season full of twists and turns. The only thing we know for sure is the New England Patriots will win the division. (Just kidding, sort of.)

Again, thank you for consistently checking out the AFC East blog.

This is when the real fun begins.
