Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:
Should Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson be in the Most Valuable Player race?
Morning take: Yes, Jackson is the engine in Buffalo's high-scoring offense. He's helping in the running and passing game. It's hard for running backs to win MVPs. But Jackson is in the early-season race.
Quarterback Mark Sanchez believes the New York Jets (2-3) can still make the playoffs.
Morning take: It's not impossible just five games in. But the Jets need to win now. There are about seven teams that look to be in the race for two wild-card spots. Plus, the AFC East is going to be difficult with the Bills and New England Patriots at the top.
The Chad Ochocinco experiment isn't working out so far for the New England Patriots.
Morning take: Ochocinco only has nine catches in five games. Most expect Ochocinco to have a better second half. But it's time for the former Pro Bowler to start picking it up.
Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey predicts quarterback and former college teammate Tim Tebow will turn the Denver Broncos around.
Morning take: Pouncey and all of Tebow's college teammates have confidence in the former Heisman Trophy winner. Tebow's first test will be against Pouncey's winless Dolphins.
