AFC North Recap: Ravens’ huge Week 7 win puts Steelers in deeper division hole

The Steelers and Browns didn’t play in Week 7, but they found themselves both in a deeper hold after a huge Ravens road win over the Seahawks.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

The seventh week of NFL football is behind us, and it was quite the week in the AFC North division. With that said, it is time to see how the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns all did in the week that was.

Time to take a look...

Baltimore Ravens - 30
Seattle Seahawks - 16

Seattle you had one job. Just ONE JOB! And you couldn’t deliver the goods. While all Steelers and Browns fans were hoping the Seahawks could hold serve at home, a place which used to be incredibly difficult to win in, they were unable to contain Lamar Jackson. Jackson rushed for over 100 yards and looked every bit as dangerous as he has throughout the entire 2019 regular season. The win propels the Ravens to a 5-2 record, and puts Cleveland and Pittsburgh in a deeper division hole than most were hoping. The Ravens now enter their bye week with a huge amount of momentum.

Jacksonville Jaguars - 27
Cincinnati Bengals - 17

I didn’t see any of this football game, and I’m not sure if anyone in Cincinnati even attended the contest. With an 0-7 start to the season, there are already rumors swirling of AJ Green wanting out of town, and can you blame him? This are only going to get worse before they get better for the Bengals.
