Morning take: Jets' motivational speaker

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

  • In the midst of their three-game losing streak, the New York Jets enlisted mixed martial arts champion Frankie Edgar to provide a motivational speech before tonight's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Morning take: Edgar is as resilient as they come in the MMA world. The Jets have shown little fight lately besides amongst themselves. Maybe this will help bring the Jets together.

Morning take: Everything should be up for discussion in 2012. Sweeping changing throughout the organization could be looming, which is why this game against the Jets is so important.

Morning take: Buffalo's defense, in particular, needs improvement or the Bills will struggle after the bye. Opponents are getting too many yards, and if the Bills can't force turnovers, they're cooked.

  • It was Tom Brady to the rescue to help the New England Patriots improve to 5-1 with a win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Morning take: Give a lot of credit to New England's defense for keeping the team in the game. The Patriots struggled on offense. But any time you let Brady hang around in the fourth quarter, this can happen.
