Morning take: Can Ravens avoid hangover?

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

  • Coming off a huge win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, quarterback Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens (3-1) want to avoid a hangover against the Denver Broncos (2-2).

Morning take: This is a dangerous spot for Baltimore following an emotional win over its biggest rival. This will be a good test of maturity for the Ravens.

  • Cleveland Browns (1-3) quarterback Jake Delhomme (ankle) could start against the Atlanta Falcons (3-1).

Morning take: This is how things would get interesting. Seneca Wallace isn't lighting it up but put the Browns in position to win three straight weeks. If the Browns bomb at home with Delhomme against a good Atlanta team, Cleveland may be headed for a quarterback controversy.

Morning take: Roethlisberger's absence was the biggest issue. Now that he's back, all the Steelers need to do is shake the rust off their franchise player.

  • The Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) could be headed for a blackout this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1).

Morning take: With the Bengals struggling, a non-sexy opponent and the Reds in the playoffs, a perfect blackout storm is brewing in Cincinnati.
