Some Jets fans thought New York might have a chance — even if it’s a distant one — to win the AFC East for the first time in years.

That feeling seemed to change with the Patriots’ newest addition.

New England reportedly agreed to a one-year contract with Cam Newton, and though the deal wasn’t official as of Tuesday morning, the quarterback pretty much confirmed it on social media.

In light of that news dropping at the same time as New England’s punishment for the Bengals filming scandal, the New York Post had a somewhat predictable sports page Monday.

The Daily News’ back page cover doesn’t touch on the Pats’ punishment, but rather the impact the Newton signing will have on the Jets.

While the Buffalo Bills and Patriots were the early favorites in the division following the departure of Tom Brady, a healthy Newton makes New England the clear frontrunner in the AFC East.
