Here are the most interesting stories Saturday in the AFC East:
Bills general manager Buddy Nix said coach Chan Gailey’s job is secure in Buffalo.
Morning take: Gailey is 13-26 as Bills coach and has one more year left on his contract. Buffalo has a 3-4 record and tough games coming up next against Houston and New England. This is a key stretch for Gailey.
Is the Miami Dolphins-Indianapolis Colts matchup underhyped?
Morning take: Not many people are talking about this game, because it’s two young and surprising teams. But if the playoffs started today, these would be your two AFC wild cards. That should tell you something.
Will the New York Jets (3-5) make the playoffs?
Morning take: Not happening, Jets fans. This team has no depth and no identity on offense. Unless New York can fix both immediately, it doesn’t have a shot.
Running back Stevan Ridley is making an impact for the New England Patriots.
Morning take: Ridley is making the most of his carries and holding onto the football. That’s all New England asks of the second-year tailback this season and he’s doing a good job.
