AFC North Recap: Bengals and Steelers only teams left still searching for their first win

The AFC North still has one undefeated team after Week 2, and it is none other than the Baltimore Ravens.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at New York Jets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The second 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 - 23
Arizona Cardinals - 17

The Baltimore Ravens didn’t blow the Cardinals’ doors off at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday, but they made enough plays when it counted to win. 2-0 is 2-0, but when you beat the Dolphins and Cardinals there is certainly some questions surrounding the quality of your wins. Week 3 is a different story for Kansas City.

San Francisco 49ers - 41
Cincinnati Bengals - 17

Remember when the Bengals almost won in Week 1 in Seattle? Their home opener was a stinker as the 49ers came to Cincinnati and demolished the Bengals. The Bengals aren’t as bad as people thought, but they also aren’t as good either.

Seattle Seahawks - 28
Pittsburgh Steelers - 26

Knowing what we know now about Ben Roethlisberger’s elbow, you have to wonder if it was hindering him throughout Week 1 and the early stages of Week 2. The way Mason Rudolph played, if he would have played earlier would the outcome had been different? We’ll never know, but the fan base is excited to see what Rudolph can do.

Cleveland Browns - 23
New York Jets - 3

This Monday Night Football game was one of the worst games I’ve witnessed in years. The Jets are completely inept, and the Browns certainly didn’t look as good as the score might indicate. With that said, Myles Garrett is an absolute monster.
