AFC North division round-up: Another undefeated month for Baltimore Ravens
November has come and passed for the AFC North and the Baltimore Ravens remain the team to beat. How did the rest of the division fair?
It’s hard to believe there’s only one month of regular season football left, but here we are. The AFC North was believed to be a tight race for first place entering the season. Instead, it’s been the Baltimore Ravens and everybody else.
The Ravens have been unstoppable in every facet of the game. This was originally believed to be the Cleveland Browns, whose offseason seemed flawless, but have instead flourished in mediocrity. The Pittsburgh Steelers have climbed back from a deep-pit that they found themselves in early in the season. And then there’s the Cincinnati Bengals, who are likely doing major homework for the 2020 NFL Draft.
Still, after rough starts to the year from everyone besides the Ravens, the AFC North looks to be competitive in the AFC playoffs. Baltimore is a virtual lock at this point, while Pittsburgh vies for a wildcard spot. Cleveland has a shot to make the wildcard, and Cincinnati… well we already discussed their situation.
Overall, November was a largely successful month for the AFC North, and things are getting interesting. Let’s break down the month of November and how the AFC North faired individually.
