1.) Miami Dolphins 

Having two divisional rivals on this list shows that the Buffalo Bills may have a tough time in the division, let alone the conference. While the Jets had a stellar defense and brought in Rodgers, the Dolphins already have a quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa who when healthy, is a true threat that has explosive weapons on the outside in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

Now they have added cornerback Jalen Ramsey who will be opposite of Xavien Howard, as well as defensive coordinator Vic Fangio who has been a proven defensive caller for many years. 

With Fangio taking over the defense, this will allow head coach Mike McDaniel to keep focusing on the development of the offense that already was explosive last season. Good coaching is one of the key factors to the success of a team.

When the Buffalo Bills had Brian Daboll leading the offense, the unit was able to take steps forward with Josh Allen. This meant that Sean McDermott could focus more on the defense, which has been a great unit under McDermott for years now. Now the Dolphins will have that same opportunity as two different coaches (McDaniel and Fangio) who have proven themselves can focus on their individual units.

The Bills are looking to get their third consecutive division championship, but the Dolphins will be looking to challenge them as the top team of the division.
