Walker's AFC North picks

After a stellar Week 1, the AFC North blog hit a rough patch in last week's division games. We missed on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals but hit on the dependable Cleveland Browns.

But we have a new slate of games and are feeling really good about our upcoming selections. Here are the AFC North blog's picks for Week 3 (all times are ET):

Cleveland Browns (0-2) at Baltimore Ravens (1-1), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: Baltimore is furious after last week's loss and hyped for its home opener. If Cleveland scores after halftime this week, consider it a moral victory.

Pick: Ravens, 24-3

Cincinnati Bengals (1-1) at Carolina Panthers (0-2), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: After two tough games, the Bengals finally get an easier matchup. Cincinnati shows maturity by handling a lesser opponent on the road.

Pick: Bengals, 28-10

Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: Steelers fans have begged me to pick against them for a third game in a row. Not this time, but maybe next week.

Pick: Steelers, 17-7

Last week's record: 1-2

Overall record: 4-3

Comment: I feel an undefeated weekend coming. Do you agree?
