Here are the most interesting stories Thursday morning in the AFC East:
Are the New England Patriots the best team in the AFC?
Morning take: These two analysts don’t think so, but you have to make them the favorite. The Patriots are the reigning AFC champs and have an improved defense. That makes them even more dangerous.
New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow has the No. 2 selling jersey this past month.
Morning take: Expect to see a lot of Tebow jerseys at Jets game this fall. That only adds to the pressure for starting quarterback Mark Sanchez to perform.
"Hard Knocks" producers said they chose the Miami Dolphins because nothing is off limits.
Morning take: The Dolphins needed the publicity much more than other teams. Now, Miami has to handle cameras being around like professionals.
The Buffalo Bills hinted at some new wrinkles on offense.
Morning take: Opponents figured out Buffalo’s offense in the second half of the season. The Bills have to readjust and do a better job of being consistent. Getting healthy also helps.
