The week ahead

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

With the regular season just a few weeks away, we have another busy week in the AFC North.

Here is a sneak peak of what to expect:

  • Later tonight, the AFC North will be covering the second preseason game of the Baltimore Ravens when they host the New York Jets. The Ravens were impressive in their preseason opener, a 23-0 victory over the Washington Redskins. Check the blog after the game for observations and reaction from Baltimore's locker room.

  • Tuesday we will run the latest "Take your pick" segment comparing two high-profile players. Feel free to take guesses.

  • This week ESPN.com will preview eight emerging stars in the NFL. Wednesday the AFC North blog will run its pick for this year. Last year the selection was Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes and he ended up the Super Bowl MVP. Who will be the pick for this season?

  • Thursday we will have a feature story on Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who discussed a variety of topics with us heading into the 2009 season.

  • On Saturday, the AFC North blog will be in the Dawgpound for the Cleveland Browns' third preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. With the quarterback race neck and neck between Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson, this will be a very important game for both players and the team in general.
