Buffalo Bills

The Bills' new-look run defense will get a test Sunday when it faces the Chiefs, who had the top rushing game in the league last season.

The team claimed 6-foot-8 offensive tackle Sam Young, a 2010 sixth-round draft pick, off waivers from the Cowboys.

Miami Dolphins

Chad Henne, who had a 93.4 quarterback rating in the preseason, is brimming with confidence heading into the season, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Coach Tony Sparano said the team's decision to keep six receivers, including second-year wideout Marlon Moore, was an easy one.

New England Patriots

Deion Branch didn't have a catch in the preseason, but considering his résumé, he's not fazed.

The team cut defensive lineman Gerard Warren and signed tight end Dan Gronkowski, the younger brother of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Cornerback Darius Butler, who was cut by the Patriots Tuesday, was quickly claimed by Panthers.

New York Jets

The Jets will be revisiting the Mark Sanchez trade Sunday -- well, most of it, anyway. Two of the three players the Jets sent to the Browns to trade up for Sanchez in the 2009 draft , Kenyon Coleman and Abe Elam, are starting for the Cowboys.

The New York Times' Ben Shpigel takes a look at rookie Jeremy Kerley, who's expected to fill the void left by Brad Smith's departure via free agency.

Santonio Holmes said the Jets' revamped receiving corps should create matchup problems for opposing defenses all season.
