Here are the most interesting stories Monday morning in the AFC East:
How much is New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick to blame for the team's struggles on defense?
Morning take: New England still is a great team. But the defense has a lot of flaws and Belichick has been unable to fix it, despite his reputation as a defensive guru. Most of that falls on his desk.
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross says there will be no coaching change after Tony Sparano lost his 10th straight game dating to last season.
Morning take: Miami put forth a solid effort against the Giants. The Dolphins aren’t winning. But they proved the past two weeks they are not giving up on their head coach.
The Buffalo Bills' nine sacks against the Washington Redskins were the most since 1964.
Morning take: Of all the great Super Bowl teams in the 1990s, none got to the quarterback like the Bills did Sunday. Buffalo’s defense has a lot of momentum going into next week’s game against the New York Jets.
Speaking of the Jets, their recent drafts are still up for discussion.
Morning take: Obviously, a lot will hinge on the success of quarterback Mark Sanchez. The development of 2010 first-round pick Kyle Wilson also is another one to watch.
