Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
After back-to-back wins, the Cleveland Browns should start rookie quarterback Colt McCoy the rest of the season.
Morning take: With victories over Drew Brees and Tom Brady, there shouldn't be any additional questions. McCoy could be their long-term solution at quarterback and he gives Cleveland the best chance to win.
Baltimore Ravens fullback Le'Ron McClain denies spitting on linebacker Channing Crowder during their victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Morning take: Watching the replay and Crowder's reaction, something may have taken place during their altercation. The NFL will look into it.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' offense needs more success on third down against the Cincinnati Bengals on "Monday Night Football."
Morning take: Pittsburgh was 3-for-10 last week on third down, which kept the defense on the field in a loss to the New Orleans Saints. The Steelers have to handle the blitz better against Cincinnati.
Will Bengals star receivers Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens respond under the bright lights against Pittsburgh?
Morning take: I want to see how much fight the entire team has left after a four-game losing streak. This game is a character test for Cincinnati.
