Here are the most interesting stories Monday:
The Buffalo Bills (3-0) are surprisingly in first place after beating the New England Patriots (2-1).
Morning take: I liked the Bills' mood in the locker room yesterday. While fans were going crazy, Buffalo players said it was just one game. It shows maturity for a young team.
Here is a report card for the Patriots in defeat.
Morning take: The defense deserves the lowest grade. Unless that unit improves, New England cannot survive a poor game by quarterback Tom Brady.
The Miami Dolphins' season has gone from bad to worse after falling to 0-3.
Morning take: The Dolphins were counting on their ability to win on the road, which was a dangerous assumption. Now, the team is in a hole it probably can't dig out of.
New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie may have suffered a bruised lung in Sunday's loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Morning take: Cromartie is a big part of New York's defense. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo didn't miss a game with the same injury, but it remains to be seen what Cromartie's timeline will be.
