When you look like you're playing high school teams during the regular season, you're kind of expected to win it all. Too often we've seen the Pats trample the opposition during the regular season often putting up 40+ points, then somehow lose in the playoffs.

Beating Houston at home isn't a guarantee because nothing is in the NFL. But historically you don't beat Brady and Belichick in Foxboro. That's why the only other team I could see winning the AFC is Denver.

The Jets and Ravens have both done it since 2009.
