Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday morning in the AFC East:
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who knows a thing or two about cold handshakes, blames the media for making a big deal out of postgame meetings between coaches.
Morning take: Remember when the Belichick-Eric Mangini postgame handshakes were a big deal? Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz trumped that this week. But I agree that handshakes should never be more important than the game itself.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan likes the way his team bounced back against the Miami Dolphins.
Morning take: Ryan pointed out last week that he's had a three-game losing streak before and New York still made a postseason run. But it’s going to be another hard road this year.
Meanwhile, frustration is building for the winless Dolphins (0-5).
Morning take: There were not happy faces in the Dolphins’ locker room after their loss to the Jets. Miami has a winnable game Sunday against the Denver Broncos (1-4) and needs a win just to bring good vibes back to the team.
Will the Buffalo Bills finish 8-8?
Morning take: A little panic is starting to set in Buffalo after losing two of the past three. I think Buffalo will be fine as long as the defense makes a few strides after the bye.
