Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North:
Is Baltimore Ravens tailback Ray Rice primed for a big game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
Morning take: Baltimore's offense is at its best when Rice is running well, and Tampa has allowed six 100-yard rushers in the past eight games.
Pittsburgh Steelers rookie receiver Emmanuel Sanders continues to make strides.
Morning take: Sanders seems to be getting better every week. His development is a good addition to Pittsburgh's passing game.
The Cincinnati Bengals lost their NFL-high eighth straight game Thursday against the New York Jets.
Morning take: I don't see things getting better next week either against the reigning champion New Orleans Saints.
Here is a further look at Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.
Morning take: Daboll has been a lightning rod for Browns fans. He has to do a much better job of getting the Browns going down the stretch or his job is in jeopardy.
