Morning take: Fred Jackson for MVP?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
