Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North:
The Pittsburgh Steelers may work on their no-huddle offense in the final two preseason games.
Morning take: Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been successful in the no huddle, but the team only uses it when necessary. The Steelers may want to consider this change of pace more often this year.
Cincinnati Bengals middle linebacker Rey Maualuga had another strong effort against the Carolina Panthers.
Morning take: Maualuga recorded four tackles in limited playing time. He is back at his natural position and playing with good instincts.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith needs to work on the technical aspect of his game.
Morning take: This is natural for rookie corners. Smith blew an assignment Thursday against Washington and allowed a touchdown pass. But Smith has all the physical tools that cannot be taught.
The Cleveland Browns struggled to gain momentum on offense against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Morning take: You knew Philadelphia would come back strong after last week's poor outing against Pittsburgh. The Browns got a taste of what it will be like to face a contender this season.
