Morning take: Taylor expected to retire

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

  • Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor is expected to play his last game Sunday against the New York Jets.

Morning take: Taylor is putting an end to a storied career that will make him a strong candidate for the Hall of Fame. Taylor is sixth all-time with 139.5 sacks.

Morning take: I think Santonio Holmes can be one of those players for New York but doesn't get enough opportunities. If the Jets can find a couple more playmakers to go with what they have, the offense can improve next season.

  • An early-season loss to the Buffalo Bills still lingers for the New England Patriots.

Morning take: This is not good news for Buffalo. New England has a lot to play for and has revenge on its mind. This game could get ugly.

Morning take: The fans, players and coaches got this one right. Running back Fred Jackson had the best chance but had a season-ending leg injury after 10 games.
