Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North:
Morning take: Although there is no guarantee Owens can keep this pace, he's done his part so far in Cincinnati's offense. Other players on offense have to produce for Cincinnati to win games.
Morning take: They're playing the winless Buffalo Bills (0-5) at home this week. That's reason enough.
Morning take: With Haden improving and starter Eric Wright struggling, the Browns may swap roles with these corners sooner than expected.
Morning take: Mendenhall is on a torrid pace because of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's absence the first four games. Now the team will pass more, which should lower Mendenhall's attempts.
