It would be remiss of the AFC North blog not to recognize what has become a rare daily double for the NFL teams in Ohio.
The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns both won on the same weekend for the first time in 46 weeks, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. On Sunday, Cincinnati routed the Oakland Raiders and Cleveland beat the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The last time the Buckeye State's professional football teams celebrated victories in the same week was Week 16 of the 2009 season, when the Browns beat the Raiders and the Bengals beat the Chiefs.
According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Bengals and Browns won on the same day for only the 14th time since Cleveland returned to the NFL in 1999.
Could the Bengals and Browns both win next week? They head to the West Coast, where Cincinnati faces the San Diego Chargers and Cleveland plays Oakland. The Chargers have lost three straight games and the Raiders have dropped four in a row.
