Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:
Should New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady be a favorite for the NFL MVP award?
Morning take: I can’t think of any player performing at a higher level over the past month. Brady has 14 touchdowns and zero interceptions during New England’s five-game winning streak. He’s seeing things at a different speed.
Will former Jets safety Kerry Rhodes get his revenge against New York head coach Rex Ryan?
Morning take: Rhodes will return to New York this week as a starter for the Arizona Cardinals. Ryan blasted Rhodes in a recent book, calling him “selfish” and “Hollywood.”
Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey says the team has taken a step back.
Morning take: It’s hard to tell with the Bills because they never put together any consistency. But an easy schedule provides this team a chance to make amends and finish strong.
Can the Miami Dolphins find the right playmakers on offense?
Morning take: Miami has the cap room and the draft picks to get rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill some weapons next year. The Dolphins are in a great spot to learn from these meaningful December games and still improve in the offseason.
