Here are the most interesting stories Friday morning in the AFC East:
New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes criticizes the offensive line for the team's struggles on offense.
Morning take: I agree with Holmes, although airing it out publicly may not be the best course of action. The Jets need a win bad, simply to end in-house bickering for at least one week.
The Buffalo Bills have been lights out in the red zone, scoring points on all 20 trips.
Morning take: And the Bills have scored 15 touchdowns in those trips. It doesn't seem natural that a spread offense would be so good close to the goal line. But Buffalo has had a lot of success with short passes and hard running by tailback Fred Jackson.
The New England Patriots reportedly worked out two defensive linemen: Marcus Hairston and Pierre Allen.
Morning take: The Patriots are short-handed after putting Mike Wright on injured reserve with a concussions. Albert Haynesworth's back also has been an issue this season.
Here is more on Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall's vow to turn it on Monday night against the Jets.
Morning take: Marshall has worked hard to keep his emotions in check and doesn't believe that's helped. Football is an emotional game and there's always a fine line. Maybe this change will bring back Marshall's old productions and consistency.
