The AFC North has long enjoyed a reputation for being one of the toughest divisions in football, but in years past the real competition was always between the Ravens and the Steelers.  The Browns have been the perennial basement dwellers of the division, while the Bengals suffered from year and years of disappointing finishes.

Those days are gone, apparently, as all four teams are truly competing for the division title in 2014.  The Browns have overcome tremendous odds with some excellent coaching, and the Bengals have overcome the loss of both coordinators to continue their fight for another playoff berth.  In a year when some divisions are faltering, the entire AFC North is putting on a show.

Trying to predict how these four teams will land by the end of the season is somewhat of a blind dart throw at this point.  All have had their share of dominant performances so far, and all have had their share of implosions.  Even after eleven weeks it’s just too hard to tell what team is going to rise to the top in the end.

But we can spot trends and provide you with our updated list of who looks the best following every week of action.  The order of these four teams seems to shuffle each week, and by the looks of it they will continue to do so right down to the wire.  Here are our AFC North power rankings for week eleven.  Be sure and tell us how much you agree (or maybe even disagree!) in the comments below.
