Morning take: Will Giants motivate Jets?

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

Morning take: It should. The Giants were only one game better than the Jets in the standings in the regular season. But chemistry and getting hot at the right time made the difference. The Jets have to play second fiddle to the reigning champs in their own market for another year.

Morning take: I wouldn't write off Brady just yet. He did just throw for the second-most passing yards ever at age 34. I think Brady has at least two or three good years left as long as he stays healthy.

Morning take: Yes, the Dolphins need to be cautious. If Manning is released, it will be because, in part, he's physically limited due to his neck. The Dolphins have to do their medical homework on Manning before giving him a big contract.

Morning take: That's admirable. Fitzpatrick's play tailed off in the second half of the season but he never complained. If not for teammate David Nelson, this topic would have never come up.
