Morning take: Can Dolphins upset Dallas?

11/23/2011

Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:

Morning take: And both teams recently pummeled the Bills, setting up Thursday’s matchup. Something has to give. We will tell you who wins this game in our prediction blog coming up next.

  • New York Jets backup quarterback Mark Brunell gets some first-team reps over starter Mark Sanchez in practice this week.

Morning take: This is a ploy by Jets head coach Rex Ryan to get a reaction out of Sanchez, who is struggling. Sanchez won’t be benched but this should get his attention that he needs to play better.

  • The New England Patriots are preparing for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vince Young, as well as starter Michael Vick.

Morning take: Young subbed for the injured Vick last week and earned a big victory over the New York Giants. Both quarterbacks have similar skills, which helps with defensive preparation.

  • Buffalo Bills receiver Donald Jones (ankle) and cornerback Terrence McGee (knee) were put on injured reserve and are out for the season.

Morning take: Neither is a big surprise. But this team is lacking depth in a lot of positions. Depth is something Buffalo needs to aim for in the draft and free agency next year.
