Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC East:
The New England Patriots are only looking forward.
Morning take: New England has the potential to win the AFC again and is probably the preseason favorite. But a lot has to go right for the Patriots to have another shot at the championship. It will be a long journey.
The Miami Dolphins' defense is getting bullied around this preseason.
Morning take: Miami's defense is giving up yards and points at an alarming rate. Yes, there have been injuries. But at the very least, the Dolphins are showing lack of depth on defense.
The New York Jets are on "Wayne Watch" after Wayne Hunter's poor preseason performance.
Morning take: Hunter is on the hot seat after having his hand in three sacks in Saturday's preseason loss to the New York Giants. But here is the big question: Who could replace Hunter?
Buffalo Bills rookie safety Delano Howell is moving up the depth chart.
Morning take: It's clear Buffalo is searching for safety depth after the team looked into acquiring Jim Leonhard. If Howell proves worthy of a 53-man roster, it would be a big boost to the secondary.
