Morning take: It's game time!

Here are the most interesting stories Sunday in the AFC North:

  • Tonight will mark the debut of receivers Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens together as the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys open the 2010 NFL season.

Morning take: I know it's just preseason, but I'm looking forward to live football. Aren't you?

Morning take: This team is certainly built to win now. The Ravens also have good, young players, but it will be difficult to replace people like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed down the road.

Morning take: Expectations are higher for the 2009 first-round pick, and Hood seems to be living up to those expectations early.

  • Cleveland Browns cornerback Brandon McDonald, who got a pick-six off rookie quarterback Colt McCoy, was one of the biggest stars of this weekend's scrimmage.

Morning take: McDonald hasn't had a great past two years in Cleveland. Perhaps the additions of Joe Haden and Sheldon Brown will bring out his best.
