AFC North Recap: Baltimore Ravens the lone winner after Week 1

The AFC North has just one undefeated team after Week 1, and it was none other than the Baltimore Ravens.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The first 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 - 59
Miami Dolphins - 10

The first play from scrimmage for the Ravens was a 50-yard run by Mark Ingram, and the game was over after that. If Lamar Jackson can deliver the football consistently the way the did against the lowly Dolphins, this Ravens team will be tough to beat.

Seattle Seahawks - 21
Cincinnati Bengals - 20

This game was one of the more entertaining games that most probably didn’t see. Andy Dalton absolutely shredded the Seahawks’ once vaunted defense, but the Bengals failed to score TDs instead of settling for field goals. It is Week 1, but if we are using that as a litmus test, the Bengals won’t be a push over, and the Seahawks are very beatable.

Tennessee Titans - 43
Cleveland Browns - 13

You thought the Steelers getting blown out was bad? At least it wasn’t at home, against a team many are predicting to not make the playoffs. That is exactly what happened to the Browns, and their fans were stunned after the team they thought would carry them to the playoffs laid a gigantic egg on their home turf.

Pittsburgh Steelers - 3
New England Patriots - 33

Losing to the defending Super Bowl Champions on the road in Week 1 isn’t a shock. Losing by 30 and not scoring a touchdown was a shock. The Steelers better get their heads right for Week 2 before this thing gets even uglier than it is right now.
