Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC East:
New York Jets superfan Fireman Ed said he is quitting that role at games this season.
Morning take: The superfan said he will attend, but not as Fireman Ed to get the crowd riled up. Strangely enough, he blamed fan reaction for the quarterback controversy with Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. I thought it would be poor play.
Buffalo Bills receiver Steve Johnson said quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick should take over more of the play-calling.
Morning take: Is this a slight to Bills head coach Chan Gailey? The play-calling has been shaky this year, at best. Johnson said the offense is too "controlled" this year.
Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill shows he can be clutch when it matters.
Morning take: A game-winning drive in the fourth quarter against Seattle is big for Tannehill’s development. He showed growth that we hadn’t seen earlier this season.
It’s going to be a tight race for the top two seeds in the AFC playoffs.
Morning take: The New England Patriots (8-3) trail the Baltimore Ravens (9-2) and Houston Texans (10-1). A first-round bye will be key for two of these teams.
