Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC East:
Monique Walker of the Boston Globe shows some love to the New England Patriots' underrated running game.
Morning take: This is the quiet but efficient part of New England's offensive juggernaut. Quarterback Tom Brady always gets most of the credit. But tailbacks Danny Woodhead and BenJarvus Green-Ellis also combine to make a solid tandem.
The Buffalo Bills' offensive line is on a mission, writes Sal Maiorana of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.
Morning take: Anytime an offense scores 41 points, the hogs up front did their jobs. Buffalo has a no-name group that played well against Kansas City. Can the offensive line maintain consistency?
Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald explains why guarding tight ends is so difficult for the Dolphins and other teams.
Morning take: Many tight ends now are just as athletic as receivers -- but bigger. Many teams have at least one dynamic tight end to stretch the field. Some have two like New England's pair of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
Brian Lewis of the New York Post was impressed by the Jets' rookie class, led by first-round pick Muhammad Wilkerson.
Morning take: Wilkerson won the job as starting defensive end this summer. That is impressive on a veteran team. He recorded just one tackle last week against Dallas but held his ground against the run.
