Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:
The Buffalo Bills remain confident despite another slow preseason performance on offense.
Morning take: The Bills haven't been consistent this preseason, but no one has in the AFC East. Buffalo will get an accurate gauge of where it stands immediately when it plays the New York Jets in Week 1.
Is free-agent tight end Chris Cooley a possibility for the Miami Dolphins?
Morning take: Any time a pass-catcher becomes available, you have to consider Miami. Starting tight end Anthony Fasano and rookie Michael Egnew have struggled in the preseason. But Cooley will have his choice of several options, and the rebuilding Dolphins might not be at the top.
New England Patriots running backs Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen are expected to sit in Wednesday's preseason finale against the New York Giants.
Morning take: This should provide ample playing time for rookie running back Jeff Demps, who missed all of training camp and half of the preseason. The Patriots need to find out what the Olympic speedster can contribute to the team this season.
The Jets defend their secrecy of the Wildcat.
Morning take: The Jets have the right not to show their entire offense in the preseason. But it's curious because nothing else worked and New York couldn't score a touchdown. Will Tim Tebow and the Wildcat be enough to save the Jets' offense?
