New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson said Sunday could also be the last game of his Hall of Fame career.
Morning take: The Jets-Dolphins game could be the end for two Hall of Famers -- Tomlinson and Jason Taylor. Tomlinson says he would come back next year in the right situation if he can win a championship.
New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien is emerging as a head-coaching candidate.
Morning take: O’Brien has done a great job working New England’s offense with quarterback Tom Brady. O’Brien would be the latest candidate from the Bill Belichick tree.
This rookie year has been a learning experience for Buffalo Bills first-round pick Marcell Dareus.
Morning take: Dareus has been a bright spot in Buffalo’s struggling defense. He’s young and needs to be more consistent. But he’s showed the ability to take over games.
The Dolphins would like to end the Jets' playoff dreams with a season-ending victory.
Morning take: Both teams most likely will be watching the playoffs from home next week. But Miami can make sure of it by taking care of business. Even if the Jets won, they need three additional things to fall in place to continue playing.
