AFC North Recap: Division gets even more clustered after Week 10
Week 10 in the AFC North is officially in the books, and what a week it was. It pitted two division rivals head-to-head, some crazy finishes, and a clustered mess when the dust settled. With that out of the way, it’s time for the weekly check-in for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, and Cleveland Browns.
But we have to take a look back, before we take a look ahead…
Houston Texans – 30
Cincinnati Bengals – 27
In a stunner of a game, the Cincinnati Bengals looked like they were in control of this game until C.J. Stroud and company had different plans. The Bengals defense was unable to slow down the prolific rookie quarterback and the Bengals’ winning streak is officially ended. Not to say the Bengals are done, but with the Texans back in the mix, this head-to-head win could have playoff implications down the road.
Pittsburgh Steelers – 23
Green Bay Packers – 19
While many Steelers fans weren’t happy with the win, these are also the games fans will suggest Mike Tomlin always loses. Lesser opponent at home is a trap game, right? Nope, the Steelers find a way to win and advance their record to 6-3. Is it sustainable? Most would say no, but what if it is? They’ve done it through nine games…if they can just get the passing game to show signs of life they can be tough to beat.
Cleveland Browns – 33
Baltimore Ravens – 31
If the Houston win over Cincinnati wasn’t enough, the Browns going into Baltimore and finding a way to beat the Ravens was equally as surprising. The Ravens squandered a 17-3 lead and fell to Deshaun Watson and Kareem Hunt as the Ravens couldn’t stop the Browns one last time to secure the win. Instead, another last minute field goal equated in a Browns win, and the Ravens have been brought back to the pack in the AFC North.
