Here are the most interesting stories Thursday morning in the AFC East:
Morning take: Chad Ochocinco's lackluster production actually took pressure off Haynesworth, who has been in and out of the lineup. But the Patriots need Hanynesworth to have a good second half of the season more than they need Ochocinco.
Morning take: Miami needs to win games. That's the bottom line. If the Dolphins remain winless and in the hunt for the No. 1 overall pick, talk of Luck won't go away.
Morning take: Buffalo has good chemistry in the locker room, which usually is the case with winning teams. Sunday's game against Washington is a big opportunity for Buffalo to improve to 5-2.
Morning take: New York plays aggressive. Penalties come with that style of play. The Jets could get better, but there are bigger concerns on the team.
