The Miami Dolphins were as much a surprise to anybody else as they were to me last year, but judging by their new schedule, no one can expect them to do as well this year.  Not only have they lost the element of 'watch out, we suck, so don't try as hard as you usually do' they now have, in my opinion the toughest schedule in the league. 

Now take a guess what the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills have in common. They both went 7-9 last year, and based on their record, they are the 'worst' team on MY Amii's schedule.  Not yours, they're MY amii.

Any who, if this off season is any indicator, Buffalo either got a lot better or a lot worse, and with JAX's returning and drafted OL, they should have overcome their Achilles and made it stronger by drafting Rashad Jennings, a huge power running back who could perfectly complete Mo-Jo. 

So the other 14 games, The Pats twice, Jets twice, and the NFC and AFC south (souths?) it's too early to see who has gotten worse, so obviously Miami has one massive doozy of a schedule next year. My final record prediction coming later.
