Ok, I finally gave in. Actually, I'm surprised I made it this far.
Every week AFC East readers ask me in chats, our division mailbag and on Twitter, "Why aren't you picking games this year?" I did it for several seasons in the AFC North -- and was pretty good, by the way -- but was trying to stay away from it in my first year covering the AFC East.
But since I'm a man of the people, I'm going to give our readers what they want. So, in Week 11, here is the 2011 debut of "Walker's AFC East picks."
Walker's take: I will be honest: From a pure passing and mechanics standpoint, Tim Tebow is the worst quarterback I have in seen years. But I like that Denver is willing to tailor its offense to fit Tebow’s athleticism, which is pretty good. But the Jets have the perfect personnel to stop Denver’s “T-Bone” offense. As long as New York’s defense doesn’t get bored and quarterback Mark Sanchez doesn’t have a meltdown, the Jets will get back on the winning side.
Pick: Jets, 20-10
Walker's take: This game looked like an easy pick two weeks ago. Now, not so much. Kudos to the Bills for what they’ve accomplished so far. I’ll take Buffalo, barely, in what I think is a must-win game. Besides, if the Bills can’t beat the 2-7 Dolphins at this stage of the season, they don’t deserve to be a playoffs team.
Pick: Bills, 21-20
Pick: Patriots, 28-7
Season record: 0-0
Projected record after this week: 3-0 (Duh!)
