Here are the most interesting stories Friday morning in the AFC East:
Morning take: Manning has the Super Bowl and the numbers so that gives him the edge. Sanchez still has a lot of room to grow and a lot to prove.
Morning take: After losing star tailback Fred Jackson, Buffalo needs as many offensive weapons as possible. Johnson and Nelson are the team’s top two receivers and will play big roles against the Jets on Sunday.
Morning take: The Dolphins weren’t expected to win the game, so give them credit for making it competitive. But shaky play down the stretch caused Miami to blow two fourth-quarter leads.
Morning take: The Eagles are desperate and dangerous because they are as talented as any team in the NFL. This will probably be New England’s stiffest test remaining in the regular season.
