Morning take: Holmes criticizes Jets' O-line

10/13/2011

Here are the most interesting stories Friday morning in the AFC East:

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.

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.
