Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
With Sunday’s 17-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals (6-2), the Baltimore Ravens (4-4) have lost four of their last five and have a lot of unanswered questions.
Morning take: Looking back at recent seasons, Baltimore has struggled to put great seasons together in back-to-back years. We may have to look into that phenomenon later this week.
Bengals tailback Cedric Benson proved the first time he rushed for more than 100 yards was no fluke.
Morning take: Benson had 117 yards rushing Sunday in what's going to be a career year. The Bengals also proved they have the right formula to be successful against Baltimore.
The rivalry between the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers will continue on "Monday Night Football."
Morning take: There’s been bigger games between these two teams in the past. But the Steelers (5-2) still need this win to keep up with the first-place Bengals and get a two-game lead over the Ravens in the standings.
Would former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar be the wrong call as general manager in Cleveland?
Morning take: I agree with the article that Kosar doesn’t fit the description of an experienced, proven talent evaluator. Mike Holmgren is a great place to start if the Browns can land him.
