Morning take: Dolphins ready for Colts?

INDIANAPOLIS -- The AFC East blog is in Indianapolis for the Dolphins-Colts matchup Sunday. Here are the most interesting stories in the division today:

Morning take: The Colts got a visit this week from ailing head coach Chuck Pagano. That could inspire Indianapolis to play even harder. The Dolphins' toughness will be tested.

  • Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix clarified his comments and says he's not looking to replace quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick immediately.

Morning take: I think Nix knows, deep down, that Fitzpatrick is not the quarterback who can lead the Bills to a Super Bowl. Buffalo must draft a long-term solution next year, similar to what the Dolphins did this year.

Morning take: Mayo has been solid and leads the Patriots in tackles. He’s smart and does what he’s coached to do.

Morning take: The Jets will say they like Quinton Coples at defensive end. But Jones so far looks like a better player. The Jets now have to find a way to block Jones twice a year.

The AFC East blog will be live at Lucas Oil Stadium for Miami (4-3) against Indianapolis (4-3) this afternoon. Remember to follow the blog and follow me on Twitter for all the latest updates throughout the day.
