The Five Best Players To See Live In The AFC East

Steve Shoup

The AFC East is full of exciting players and fascinating story lines.  Three of its teams are right in the thick of the playoff hunt, and even the struggling New York Jets have nevertheless shown flashes of promise and competitiveness.  And the easiest way to save big and see this division’s best players in person is through ScoreBig.com!

New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis doesn’t just have his own nickname—the man’s got his very own island!  Revis has spent 7 of his 8 years in the AFC East (there was a one-year sojourn in Tampa in between), smothering some of receivers and driving opposing quarterbacks insane.  Although most fans don’t come out to the stadium to watch defensive action, watching Revis play man-to-man coverage on some of the game’s best wide receivers is actually as exciting a sight as the NFL can offer.

Sitting at a sorry 1-6 record after Week 7, the New York Jets have had very little to feel good about this season.  Running back Chris Ivory, however, has proved a lone bright spot.  Long considered at second option at best at the position, 2014 has been a total breakout year for Ivory—he has two 100-yard games and his ability to pick up first downs has gone a long way toward controlling the clock and ensuring the Jets are even able to stay in these games to begin with (games they nevertheless go on to lose, but still).

Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake has been terrorizing opposing quarterbacks in the pocket for half a decade, and he’s on pace for yet another double-digit sack season in 2014.  His two sacks on Tom Brady were a key reason for the Dolphins shocking Week 1 upset of the heavily-favored Patriots.

Fresh out of Clemson, rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins, Jr. has been an electrifying player for the upstart Buffalo Bills.  Although he’s suffered a nagging injury, as well as the traditional growing pains that come with inexperience in the NFL, there’s no denying his talent.  Get in on the Watkins bandwagon while there’s still room—you’re going to want to watch him run routes live for the next decade.

But, of course, when discussing which players are the most exciting to see live in the AFC East, there’s one individual that must command the most respect: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.  His driver’s license might say he’s 37 but his age doesn’t show on the field; he’s just as dominant as ever, on pace for what would be his 5th career 30-touchdown season.
