Morning take: Can Bills stop Tom Brady?

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

Morning take: Brady is playing at an MVP level. So, the goal should be slowing down New England's offense. Perhaps the bigger question is can the Bills and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick keep pace with Brady at home?

  • The Patriots announced they will be without starting safety Patrick Chung (thumb) and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (back).

Morning take: Chung was expected. But Haynesworth was injured a few days ago and leaves New England with a suddenly thin defensive line. Fortunately for the Patriots, the Bills use a lot of spread formations. That requires more defensive backs for New England.

  • Will the Oakland Raiders (1-1) upset the New York Jets (2-0)?

Morning take: A lot of people are picking this game as a Week 3 upset special. Many feel the Raiders match up well against the Jets. I'm not making predictions this year. But if I was I would pick...just kidding.

Morning take: This is a more favorable matchup for Miami's struggling defense. Miami going from New England's offense, to Houston's offense to Cleveland's Sunday will be a welcome site in a must-win situation.
