Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday morning in the AFC East:
The road to the Super Bowl could go through New England (11-3) in the AFC after the Pittsburgh Steelers (10-4) lost to the San Francisco 49ers on "Monday Night Football."
Morning take: This was a great weekend for the Patriots. Baltimore and Pittsburgh both relinquished the top seed, while the Jets lost and helped clinch the AFC East for the Patriots.
New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka says they are better than the Jets.
Morning take: Well, Rex Ryan feels the same way about the Jets. I like the fact that both teams have so much on the line in this game. The loser probably stays home for the postseason.
The Miami Dolphins' secondary is finishing the season strong.
Morning take: Miami's secondary is forcing turnovers and shutting down receivers. Vontae Davis also is developing into a legit No. 1 corner before our eyes.
Should the Buffalo Bills bring receiver Steve Johnson back?
Morning take: This is a constant topic in Buffalo. The Bills want Johnson and he wants to stay in Buffalo. But, as usual, it will come down to money.
