Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC East:
New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes faces a six-month rehabilitation from his foot injury.
Morning take: It's going to be a long road back for Holmes, who should be ready for offseason work. Football is an unpredictable game, where injuries can happen at any moment.
Can the Miami Dolphins stop Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green?
Morning take: Green is as hot as any receiver in the NFL. Dolphins corner Sean Smith will draw the tough assignment after doing a decent job against Larry Fitzgerald last week.
Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is aiming for consistency.
Morning take: The entire Bills defensive line should be more consistent. This group hasn't dominated week in and week out as I expected. But it's still a young season.
New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes is looking forward to playing the Denver Broncos.
Morning take: Spikes is one of the biggest hitters in the AFC East. New England's defense seems more aggressive when Spikes is healthy and productive.
