Here are the most interesting stories Saturday morning in the AFC East:
Did receiver Brandon Marshall, via Twitter, guarantee the winless Miami Dolphins (0-6) will beat the New York Giants (4-2)?
Morning take: Marshall says he doesn't want any excuses from the media "when" Miami wins. I don't know if giving the Giants bulletin-board material is a good idea.
In more Dolphins news, Miami owner Stephen Ross denies an NFL.com report that he's reached out to representatives of former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher.
Morning take: There have been several similar reports, and Miami has denied all of it. According to Ross' statement, he wants Tony Sparano to win and remain the Dolphins' head coach.
Will New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady be too much for the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense?
Morning take: History suggests Brady has Pittsburgh's number. I think Pittsburgh's best chance is for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to match Brady's production and try to pull out a close game.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick talks about his new, $59-million extension.
Morning take: Fitzpatrick is officially the face of Buffalo's franchise. He's a good fit and leader for the Bills. Now, Fitzpatrick has to prove he's the long-term solution.
