Morning take: Will Patriots get a bye?

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC East: Morning take: This is a stunning development considering New England was expected to get a No. 3 seed heading into Week 16. But Houston’s recent loss provides two options of hope for New England.
Morning take: Former starter Mark Sanchez was probably happy he didn't have to take that kind of pounding.
Morning take: According to Bills coach Chan Gailey, Chandler's knee injury isn't good. Chandler in some ways is the glue to the passing game but could have a lot of rehab ahead.
Morning take: Miller played well with 73 rushing yards on 10 attempts. He could be Reggie Bush’s replacement next year if the price tag is too high in free agency.
