Another week is down in the NFL season which means

it is a good time for an AFC East Roundup to get up to date on everything that is happening so far with the teams. Some are trending up while others are trending way down.Buffalo BillsThey are bad.New England PatriotsThe Patriots are getting into their groove after their usual slow start to the season. They now have key victories against the Kansas City Chiefs and now the Green Bay Packers. Their defense is average but they make big plays when they count whether it be a pick-six against the Bills on Monday night to seal it , or a late forced fumble against the Packers when they were trying to lead their comeback. Their offense is coming together nicely even with Rob Gronkowski dealing with nagging injuries again but the team has shown countless times that they can win without him.Miami Dolphins/New York JetsThese two teams are grouped together this week due to the fact that they played each other on Sunday. The Dolphins came away with the victory do to their defense intercepting rookie Sam Darnold four times on the afternoon. The Dolphins remain in the middle of the pack and are looking to get on a role as the season progresses in hopes of stealing a wild card spot in the postseason.The Jets on the flip side are in rebuild mode but there are a lot of good pieces in place. The team always plays hard on defense so now the key is just finding that rhythm on offense. After all, Darnold is just a rookie so the interceptions are natural as he continues to learn. For now, the focus is to get him weapons on offense and hopes that he developed into the franchise player that they hope he becomes.Five Bills to watch, revisited: offense terrible vs Baltimore Ravens Well, that was embarrassing.The Buffalo Bills traveled to Maryland only to be trounced on opening day by the Baltimore Ravens, losing 47-3 in what was the worst first-game loss in team history. The Bills did not manage a single first down in the first half, and their quarterbacks combined for fewer passing yards (98) than the team had penalty yards assessed against it (100). Yeah, it was that kind of day.Each week , we provide a look at five players to watch during the upcoming week’s game, and this week, we couldn’t have guessed that one of those players would not even suit up for the contest. Although, upon further review, it might have been better if at least one other player on the list didn’t play in the game, either.Here is a look at how our five Bills to watch performed on Sunday.CB Vontae DavisDavis wasn’t a Bill to watch, instead serving as a Bill who watched during this one. Davis was a healthy scratch on the afternoon, ceding the starting snaps to Phillip Gaines. Rookie Taron Johnson then manned the slot. Davis watched as Gaines allowed touchdown receptions to John Brown and Michael Crabtree in the first half , and when Johnson left the game with a shoulder injury, head coach Sean McDermott turned to safety Rafael Bush as his slot corner.QB Nathan PetermanPeterman completed 5 of his 18 passes, totaling 24 yards, and he added 2 interceptions on the day, which mercifully ended in the third quarter. When accounting for the 3 sacks Peterman took, losing 12 yards, he netted 12 yards passing. On his career, Peterman is now 29-for-67 (43%) with 2 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. His career quarterback rating is 25.7 after yesterday’s goose-egg. He has yet to complete a game he has started , having left two due to poor performance and one due to injury. After a stellar preseason, Peterman once again flopped when the game mattered.WR Zay JonesIt’s difficult to evaluate a receiver when his quarterbacks struggled so mightily in doing anything, but Jones had the best day of any Buffalo receiver. That’s not saying much, but it is saying something. Jones caught 3 of his 6 targets for a team-high 26 yards receiving. All other Buffalo receivers combined for 4 catches and 31 yards on 12 targets. If Jones can provide whomever the starting quarterback is next week with a solid option, he can help to turn the offense around.DE Trent MurphyUnfortunately, Buffalo’s pass rush looked a lot like it did last year. Joe Flacco had eons to throw, moving the pocket and using his athleticism to elude would-be tacklers in the pocket on the rare occasions when Buffalo did provide any sort of pressure. Murphy made one tackle, and he was also credited with a half-sack in garbage time against rookie Lamar Jackson. Murphy displayed a good motor throughout the day , and he looked like an upgrade on the outside over Shaq Lawson. However, his presence did not instantly pay dividends in the game, as Buffalo had only one “sack” when the Ravens had their starters in the game. (Flacco fell down at the line of scrimmage and was touched by rookie Tremaine Edmunds for a loss of around a foot.)C Ryan GroyBuffalo’s offensive line was as-advertised yesterday. They could not open holes in the running game, as Baltimore stacked the box and played press-man on the outsides, daring Peterman to beat them with physical tools he doesn’t possess and receiving weapons that aren’t on the roster. As a result, the quarterbacks were under constant duress, and when they did have some time it was because Baltimore had locked up all of Buffalo’s receivers, leading to an eventual hit on the quarterback as he stepped up in the pocket. It was not a good day for anyone wearing blue Cheap Zay Jones Jersey , and Groy might not have been the worst offensive lineman on the field for the Bills, but he did not have a great debut as the team’s official starting center.
