Morning take: Logjam in AFC East

We have a three-way tie atop the AFC East. Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the division:

Morning take: Ryan deserves a lot of credit for keeping the Jets together through their three-game losing streak. New York was on the verge of imploding and weeks later share the top spot in the AFC East.

Morning take: Buffalo is on top of the division, as well. But Bills fans should be very nervous. They have been inconsistent the past several weeks and have to play on the road in three straight games.

Morning take: This is bad news for New England, which has scored 20 points or fewer in three straight games. The Patriots are not build to win defensive battles. They will lose more often than not when quarterback Tom Brady and the offense struggles.

  • The Miami Dolphins (1-7) are in last place. But they finally lifted the cloud of losing with a 31-3 blowout win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Morning take: I've been saying all along the Dolphins have the talent to win a few games. Next week Miami has a chance to win two in a row against the Washington Redskins.
