Morning take: AFC East goes 3-1

By James Walker

It appears my good luck already is showing. The AFC East is 6-2 through the first two weeks.

Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the division: Morning take: The Bills are 2-0 and one of the NFL's early surprises. They showed tremendous heart overcoming a 21-3 deficit in the second half. We will know a lot more about the upstart Bills after next week's divisional showdown with the New England Patriots.
Morning take: The Patriots (2-0) are rolling in most areas with wins against the Miami Dolphins and San Diego Chargers. But pass defense has been one constant weakness in both weeks. New England gave up 372 passing yards to San Diego on Sunday.
Morning take: The dreaded high ankle sprain usually keeps players out for a few weeks. The Jets' offensive line has been up and down and needs Mangold back as soon as possible.
Morning take: I agree. I liked Thomas’ production (107 yards) in between the tackles. His fumble was a big error, but that's what rookies often do.
