AFC North Recap: Steelers miss golden opportunity to gain ground in division

The entire AFC North division were losers after Week 3.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at San Francisco 49ers Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The third 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...

Kansas City Chiefs - 33
Baltimore Ravens - 28

The Baltimore Ravens were an up-and-down team vs. the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium Sunday, but the Ravens have the look of the cream of the crop in the AFC North. Lamar Jackson is a playmaker, and the Steelers will have to find a way to contain him in a couple weeks when the two rivals meet up for matchup No. 1.

Buffalo Bills - 21
Cincinnati Bengals - 17

If you thought the Steelers were bad, well at least they have company in the division by way of the Bengals. Cincinnati seems to mirror the Steelers in many ways this season. Very inconsistent and lacks the inability to finish when given the opportunity. The two teams will play on Monday night in Week 4, and someone has to win, right?!

Los Angeles Rams - 20
Cleveland Browns - 13

The Rams went into a prime time game in Cleveland and were able to barely leave with a win. This was a high-flying affair for both teams, and a couple very questionable decisions by both Baker Mayfield and head coach Freddie Kitchens leaves the Browns 1-2 on the season and preparing to head into Baltimore in Week 4. Remember when everyone said the Browns were going to the Super Bowl?

San Francisco 49ers - 24
Pittsburgh Steelers - 20

If I told you during Mason Rudolph’s first NFL start he would have the football with the lead and under 5 minutes to go, you would probably sign up for that right away! If not for a James Conner fumble, the Steelers could be looking at 1-2 and not 0-3 on the season, but that has been the trend for the black-and-gold this year. A lot of what ifs and could bes to go around.
