Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday morning in the AFC East:
Will the Super Bowl run by the New York Giants motivate the cross-town rival Jets?
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.
Is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady entering the twilight of his career?
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.
Should the Miami Dolphins proceed with caution with Peyton Manning?
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.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick won't use his rib injury as an excuse.
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.
