AFC North Recap: Wild Week 6 has all three teams win

Week 6 is officially in the rear view mirror for all four teams who call the AFC North home, and the division is completely upside down after Sunday’s action. There was bad offense, questionable coaching decisions, and every team who took the field was a winner.

Time to take stock of what happened in the AFC North, and what is coming up…

Baltimore Ravens – 24
Tennessee Titans – 16

This game was played in England as a part of the International Series, and like so many games played don the other side of the pond, it was sloppy. This as a back-and-forth affair, but the Ravens dominated the play once Ryan Tannehill left the game. It was a big win for the Ravens, as they put themselves back in first place after the Steelers were inactive.

Cincinnati Bengals – 17
Seattle Seahawks – 13

This game was a good one to watch, and had plenty of key plays made towards the end of the game. While the Bengals made a few more plays than the Seahawks, the story of this game was the Cincinnati pass rush. Every time the Seahawks had an opportunity to take the lead in the game, Geno Smith was running for his life. With the game on the line, and the Seahawks facing a 4th and goal situation, it was Smith being sacked to end the game. Very emblematic of the game.

Cleveland Browns – 19
San Francisco 49ers – 17

Most NFL fans would have said this was the “easy money” pick if you were talking about taking the 49ers to win and cover on the road against the Deshaun Watson-less Browns. On the Steelers Preview I predicted the Browns will keep it close, and my bold prediction was the Browns would win by getting points. Never would I imagine the Browns would win straight up, but let’s just say there were some questionable calls made by the officials before Jake Moody missed the would-be game winning 41-yard field goal. The Browns give the 49ers their first loss of the season, and the Browns stay alive.
