Morning take: Tannehill vs. Patriots

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

  • Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill says he's ready for the New England Patriots.

Morning take: This is the biggest game of Tannehill’s rookie season. Miami could open up a world of possibility with a victory. But a poor performance by Tannehill could effectively end Miami’s season.

Morning take: This is no surprise with two teams with a combined record of 6-16. With bad weather and an inconsistent team, this could be the first of several December blackouts.

Morning take: Tebow shouldn’t dress unless he’s healthy enough to contribute. The Jets don’t need him to suit up to win. Rest Tebow if necessary.

Morning take: The Patriots are plus-24 in turnover ratio, which is the highest in the league. They’re a smart team that doesn’t make mistakes, and New England pounces quickly on other teams’ mishaps.
