Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
Two of the NFL's best return specialists will meet Sunday when Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears faces off against Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns.
Morning take: With the way both teams performed last week, special teams may be the most exciting part of this matchup.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth believes the defense will improve Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
Morning take: With two weeks to correct some issues, I agree with Foxworth. Expect to see a solid defensive performance from Baltimore in a big game.
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark, who has sickle-cell, has a tough decision to make when the team travels to play Denver in high altitude on Nov. 9.
Morning take: The last time Clark played in Denver he had serious complications and health issues. Football is just a game. Perhaps he should pass.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end J.P. Foschi has moved ahead of Daniel Coats for the starting role.
Morning take: I’m not surprised by this move. Coats couldn’t catch the football, and in Cincinnati’s offense that’s not going to fly for very long.
