Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
The Cincinnati Bengals have no answers after the Miami Dolphins gave Cincinnati its fourth straight loss.
Morning take: If it wasn't for high-profile teams like the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings, Cincinnati would get a lot more attention for their disappointing season. I expected more from this group.
The Pittsburgh Steelers couldn't stop quarterback Drew Brees, who threw for 305 yards and two touchdowns in a win for the New Orleans Saints.
Morning take: Pittsburgh's pass defense has had trouble with several quarterbacks lately. Brees, Chad Henne and Colt McCoy all put up respectable numbers against the Steelers.
Cleveland Browns safety Abram Elam had to overcome plenty of hardships to get to the NFL.
Morning take: Every player has a story. This is a good piece on Elam's journey.
How will the Baltimore Ravens (5-2) fare in the second half of the season?
Morning take: They're in first place in the AFC North. So that's a successful start. Now it's a two-team race with Pittsburgh the rest of the way.
