For the second straight week, an AFC North team ended an opponent's undefeated streak.
But here's the rub: Both previously unbeaten teams were from other divisions.
That brings up a natural "Thought of the Day" question: Is the AFC North currently the best division in football? There is enough firepower to make a strong case that it is.
In the past two weeks, the Minnesota Vikings (7-1) and Denver Broncos (6-1) both suffered double-digit losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-2) and Baltimore Ravens (4-3), respectively. The Cincinnati Bengals (5-2) also crushed the Chicago Bears by 35 points in addition to quality wins over the Green Bay Packers, Steelers and Ravens.
The AFC North is one of just three divisions with a trio of teams with winning records. The others are the NFC East and NFC North.
So after eight weeks, which division do you feel is the strongest in the NFL and why? Send your thoughts and comments below or to our AFC North inbox and we will run the best responses throughout the week.
