Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
The Baltimore Ravens are healthy again after the bye.
Morning take: This is one key to making a run in the second half of the season. I’m eager to see what the Ravens (3-3) have planned for the undefeated Denver Broncos after two weeks away.
Now it’s the Cincinnati Bengals’ turn to rest and prepare for the stretch run.
Morning take: The Bengals won’t take the field again until Nov. 8 against the Ravens. That meeting will be crucial to how the division race shapes up going forward.
The Pittsburgh Steelers enter their bye banged up on defense.
Morning take: After a physical battle with the Minnesota Vikings, linebacker Lawrence Timmons (ankle) and defense end Travis Kirschke (calf) both were injured. Starting safety Ryan Clark also has health concerns with the thin air in Denver, which is the location of Pittsburgh’s next game.
Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini says he wants to use more of the Wildcat offense.
Morning take: The Browns continue to search for an identity on offense. At what point will they find it?
