Morning take: Taylor exits in style

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

Morning take: Dolphins fan or not, you should watch this video. Taylor is a class act who played hard his entire career, and his teammates played hard for him against the rival Jets.

  • According to a team source, New York Jets receiver Santoino Holmes "quit" on the team in the fourth quarter of their loss to the Dolphins.

Morning take: Holmes said he was taken out by teammate Patrick Turner, so we don’t know what exactly to believe. What we do know is Holmes’ actions in the huddle weren’t good and caused a distraction.

Morning take: Credit goes to New England’s much-maligned defense for tightening things up. But I’m still not totally confident in that group going into the playoffs.

Morning take: A 6-10 record is about what was expected from Buffalo in the preseason. But a quick start changed expectations and now it feels like a disappointment.
