(CBS) – This week as we look towards the AFC East, we’ll see a mix of divisional rivals as the New York Jets take on the Philadelphia Eagles and the Miami Dolphins host the New York Giants. In the main event of the tournament, we see the New England Patriots 8-4 and the Buffalo Bills 7-4 compete for the AFC East title.
CBS Boston sports reporter Levan Reid reviewed three AFC East games in Week 13.
All times listed are Eastern.
New York Giants @ Miami Dolphins, Sunday, December 5 at 1:00pm
The Dolphins enter this game on a four-game winning streak, and the Giants are also on the upswing after a nasty win over Philadelphia last week. As Reid looks at this contest, he sees a sour day in the sun for the boys in blue.
“Suddenly, Brian Flores from the fact that we were going to fire you, Brian Flores assumed you weren’t that bad,” Reid said. “Tua is playing well. I’m not sure if Daniel Jones will play, he’s got a neck injury and they’re just moving things around that team, here and there. So I’ll take the Miami Dolphins to play at home. Plus, it’s in Miami. New York will come out and be like, you know, our season is over looking at the sun and the fun here in Miami, let’s have a good time and the game will work itself out. the way it always does. ”
Philadelphia Eagles @ New York Jets Sunday, December 5 at 1:00pm on CBS
The New York Jets had a crunch win last week despite missing out on their top WR and RB. Gang Green’s defense was imprecise and closed in the second half. The Eagles’ offense is all predicted to be cornering, an area the Jets have attempted to defend this season that allows 4.5 yards per take. The Eagles have an 11-0 history against the Jets. With a win, New York will not only end Philly’s unbeaten run but also advance to the 500-point mark at home for the year.
“Whenever you play the Jets, it’s a homecoming game, like Alabama played at Norwood High,” said Levan Reid of Boston. “This is your right game. This is where you fill in your stats. This is where your agent takes the tape and says ‘look what you did in this game, here’s what we’re bringing to the other teams. The Eagles will defeat the Jets. They will close in on the jet. “
New England Patriots @ Buffalo Bills, Monday, December 6 at 8:15 on CBS
The Patriots enter week 13 with a six-game winning streak and have risen to the top of the table. Buffalo has played .500 balls since week 7 flip flopping wins and loses every week during that period. The undefeated Bills in the division displayed a perfect 3-0 record while the Pats sat at 2-1 in the AFC East competitions. When it comes to this heavyweight bout, Reid is all on his local team.
Reid said: “The big brother is confronting the younger brother. “The younger brother started taking over the division, the big brother came knocking on the door. And the younger brother was like ‘what are you doing here? You take over 20 people, you leave one and you’re back. I changed the lock. ‘ I’m going to beat the Patriots in this game, with a six-game winning streak. They look as if they are playing well. They feel like they’re playing well. There was even more pressure on Buffalo to win this game, as they played Tampa a week later. So the patriots take part in this game. They have young midfielders. They know what they do well. Buffalo is still trying to figure that out. Josh Allen and his arrogant arm, trying to throw the ball over people. But I will put the Patriots in this game. ”
