Morning take: Will Pats' D step up?

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

Morning take: The Giants are a tough challenge, particularly in the passing game. But New England's defense has been solid, allowing just 30 points in two postseason games. Red zone defense will be key.

  • Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus says Patriots quarterback Tom Brady "cries to the referees" and it "always goes his way."

Morning take: I don't understand all the Brady hate this week. He's only playing in his fifth Super Bowl. Maybe this was payback for the comment Brady made about Buffalo hotels.

Morning take: Sun Life Stadium is not all that impressive. There's no energy and nothing special about it. But the Dolphins say change is coming.

  • New York Jets coach Rex Ryan says quarterback Mark Sanchez and receiver Santonio Holmes will work things out.

Morning take: They have no choice if they want to be successful next season. Holmes will be the No. 1 receiver for New York and Sanchez most likely will be the starting quarterback, barring something crazy happening with a guy in Indianapolis.
