Morning take: Patriots' finish concerning?

Here are the most interesting stories Monday morning in the AFC East:

  • Should the New England Patriots be concerned about the team's weak finish against the Indianapolis Colts?

Morning take: Fans booed the Patriots after they gave up 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter. But I'm not worried. New England took its foot off the pedal against a winless team.

Morning take: The Jets are the ninth seed and have losses to the Raiders (7-5) and Broncos (7-5). But winnable games coming up against the Chiefs (5-7) and Eagles (4-8) could help New York get in better position.

  • Linebacker Karlos Dansby says the Miami Dolphins (4-8) are so good, it's scary.

Morning take: It's a shame this team started 0-7. It would be interesting to see how dangerous the Dolphins would be if they were still in the playoff hunt.

  • Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller looked good in a loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Morning take: Buffalo, losers of five straight, need something good to build on. Spiller showed flashes of promise by leading the Bills in rushing with 83 yards and a touchdown.
