Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
The Pittsburgh Steelers are super once again after beating the New York Jets to advance to Super Bowl XLV.
Morning take: Pittsburgh showed amazing resilience this season to qualify for its second Super Bowl appearance in three seasons. Now the Green Bay Packers await.
Baltimore Ravens fans have to be disappointed to see the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
Morning take: Baltimore was close to beating Pittsburgh in the divisional round. Could the Ravens have beaten the Jets at M&T Bank Stadium? Who knows?
Is Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer calling owner Mike Brown's bluff with his trade request?
Morning take: I didn't sense Brown was going to have many wide-ranging changes throughout the organization. Perhaps Palmer from the inside doesn't see many changes coming either.
The Cleveland Browns continue to search for an offensive coordinator.
Morning take: Without much talent or the ability to call plays, the job isn't all that attractive. But the Browns need to make a hire soon so they can move forward.
