Morning take: Gronkowski homecoming
Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC East:
Morning take: Aaron Hernandez's knee injury should provide more responsibility for both Gronkowskis. Will they be the difference in the battle of undefeated teams?
- New England Patriots tight ends Rob and Dan Gronkowski will have a homecoming in Buffalo when they face the Bills, Jeff Howe of NESN writes.
Morning take: Burress, 34, no longer needs to be the No. 1 option. He's in New York to win and the Jets are doing pretty well at that.
- Steve Serby of the New York Post writes that Jets receiver Plaxico Burress is fine with zero catches against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Morning take: The Dolphins definitely have to play smarter. Miami is counting on some young players in big roles, and it's showing with mental errors and lack of execution at key moments.
- Linebacker Kevin Burnett tells Mike Berardino of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that the Miami Dolphins must simplify things to turn the team around.
Morning take: Roscoe Parrish (ankle) could be out for an extended period. That hurts depth and special teams. Steve Johnson's groin injury also is a concern.
