Morning take: Bills lead AFC East

Here are the most interesting stories Monday:

Morning take: I liked the Bills' mood in the locker room yesterday. While fans were going crazy, Buffalo players said it was just one game. It shows maturity for a young team.

Morning take: The defense deserves the lowest grade. Unless that unit improves, New England cannot survive a poor game by quarterback Tom Brady.

Morning take: The Dolphins were counting on their ability to win on the road, which was a dangerous assumption. Now, the team is in a hole it probably can't dig out of.

  • New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie may have suffered a bruised lung in Sunday's loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Morning take: Cromartie is a big part of New York's defense. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo didn't miss a game with the same injury, but it remains to be seen what Cromartie's timeline will be.
