Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
No matter how you cut it, Saturday's playoff game is going to hurt the Ravens and Steelers.
Morning take: I mentioned earlier in the week that it's debatable whether either team will have something left for the next round. But both clubs are going in pretty healthy.
Morning take: This is a good opportunity for Cincinnati. But the last time the Bengals had a high pick, they took Andre Smith No. 6 overall when everyone (including the AFC North blog) warned them not to.
Morning take: Daboll, who is still under contract, will be released once the Browns hire their new head coach. Reportedly Pat Shurmur could be named as early as this week.
