Whoo, boy.  Things are getting a little cramped in the AFC North.

 

Sunday’s games offered quite a bit of variety.  Sure, the Browns and Bengals lost.  The Ravens continued their unorthodox, yet successful (so far) offensive game plan.  The Steelers?  Well, they’ve had better days.  Speaking of which…

 

The Steelers have been all over the place lately.  Three weeks ago, they were considered among the league’s elite teams and were fighting for a first-round bye in the playoffs.  Now, they’re searching for an identity and answers after a much-too-close win in Jacksonville and two subsequent losses.  The Steelers, given their propensity for scoring points, could either recover in time to be the genuine playoff threat most envisioned, or they could continue their recent free-fall and miss the playoffs entirely.  The pressure’s really on.  Speaking of which…

 

The Ravens and rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson are clearly enjoying themselves and their three-game winning streak.  The question of whether the Ravens, as currently constructed, could succeed in the playoffs has become louder with the possible return of incumbent quarterback Joe Flacco this week.  While head coach John Harbaugh has declined (again) to name a starter for their upcoming game in Kansas City, all signs point to Jackson being on the field for their first series at minimum.  Speaking of which…

 

One guy that won’t be on the field this Sunday is Bengals wideout A.J. Green, who re-injured his toe and has been placed on season-ending IR by the team.  Considering the state of the Bengals and (possibly) embattled head coach Marvin Lewis, the end of their miserable 2018 campaign can’t come soon enough.  Whether 2019 brings major changes for the Bengals is undetermined, but with owner Mike Brown still technically in charge, it’s probably safe to expect as little movement as possible.  Speaking of which…

 

After Sunday’s loss to the Texans, the Browns are currently slotted to pick at #11 in the 2019 NFL draft.  Considering the wealth of picks stockpiled by the Browns, it’s going to be tough to project where and how they’ll move around the draft board, if at all.  Since there are obvious needs at every offensive position besides quarterback and possibly running back, the Browns are sure to be busy.

 

Enjoy the week!
