Poll: Surprise of the passing game

The biggest disappointment in the division has been the play of the defenses. The biggest surprise has been the production from some unexpected players in the passing game.

After two games, slot receiver Andrew Hawkins leads the Bengals in receiving yards (142), not A.J. Green. Hawkins was on the roster bubble this summer before beating out Jordan Shipley.

Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi tops the Browns with 131 yards receiving and a 16.4-yard average. He was expected to get bumped out of the starting lineup by Josh Gordon after last year's disappointing season.

Tight end Dennis Pitta ranks first on the Ravens in catches (13) and receiving yards (138) after missing most of the preseason with a broken hand. He was the second tight end taken by the Ravens in the 2010 draft (Ed Dickson was the first one).

Wide receiver Mike Wallace is tied for first on the Steelers with two touchdowns and is second in both receptions (nine) and receiving yards (111). These numbers come after Wallace skipped all of the offseason workouts and training camp.
