Morning take: Patriots building for playoffs

Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:

Morning take: New England’s offense struggled in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins. But this is a versatile unit that is dangerous in a lot of areas. Once tight end Rob Gronkowski and guard Logan Mankins come back, this group will at full strength.

Morning take: This offseason will be huge for Miami. The team has the draft picks and cap room to make a jump. But general manager Jeff Ireland must make wise decisions.

Morning take: I’m not sure if that was a coincidence -- but Edwards would have been better off leaving the Jets comments to himself. At least we know a Gang Green return is not in the works.

Morning take: Buffalo’s chances of winning increases when the ball is in the hands of Spiller and fellow tailback Fred Jackson. With the elements at play in December, Buffalo should focus on running the ball.
