Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:
Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was fired by the Dallas Cowboys. Could he join twin brother Rex Ryan with the New York Jets?
Morning take: If it happens it will only be as a position's coach. Rex Ryan plans to promote secondary coach Dennis Thurman as New York's next defensive coordinator.
The Buffalo Bills will hire former Syracuse offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett for the same position.
Morning take: Former Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone is bringing his own guys to Buffalo. Now all the Bills need is Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib to complete the trifecta on offense.
New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes said it's "go hard or go home" in the playoffs.
Morning take: That pretty much sums up the divisional round. This weekend will separate the pretenders from the true title contenders.
Tailback Reggie Bush says he wants to return to the Miami Dolphins.
Morning take: Bush rushed for more than 2,000 yards over the past two seasons, but I still think Miami plays hardball. The Dolphins have two young running backs in Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas who can share the load next season.
