Here are the most interesting story lines in the AFC North:
Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says the Steelers went into the bye week in grand style during Sunday night's 26-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Morning take: The Steelers came into the season with the NFL's toughest schedule, yet enter the bye week at 4-1. It wasn't always pretty, but the results were effective.
Some mystery writer also says it's time to consider the Pittsburgh Steelers among the NFL's elite.
Morning take: That mystery writer also was impressed with the depth Pittsburgh has shown the past two weeks, which will serve the Steelers well later in the year.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, the Baltimore Ravens were highly upset with a late personal foul penalty call on Terrell Suggs that contributed to Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Morning take: In fact, we noticed a pair of shoddily officiated games this weekend involving AFC North teams, with the other being the Steelers-Jaguars contest. The worst part of this particular call was it came at a crucial time of the game.
Paul Daugherty of the Cincinnati Enquirer wonders if a 31-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys counts as a victory of sorts for the Bengals?
Morning take: Only if Cincinnati builds on Sunday's solid showing. If the Bengals lay an egg next week and fall to 0-6, everyone will quickly forget how well the team competed Sunday against one of the NFL's best.
