Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:
Are the Buffalo Bills pretenders or contenders after their big win over the Arizona Cardinals?
Morning take: It was a very important victory, but it won’t mean anything if Buffalo doesn’t win at home Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The Bills have to keep this momentum going into the bye week.
Will the New York Jets upset the reigning AFC champion New England Patriots?
Morning take: Anything is possible, especially in rivalry games. The AFC East blog is 17-4 this season and will make our picks later in the week.
Patriots safety Steve Gregory (hip) is getting closer to returning.
Morning take: The pass defense was bad with Gregory and the Patriots continued to allow big plays after he went down. But another veteran on the back end can’t hurt.
Why are the Miami Dolphins keeping rookie running back Lamar Miller on the sidelines?
Morning take: The youngster needs to gain the trust of the coaching staff in some areas. Miller’s pass blocking needs a lot of improvement; that could be the biggest reason.
