Another week has come and gone for those who call the AFC North home, and it is time for to check in to see how the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals fared in Week 11 of NFL action, and to update the standings heading into Week 12.
Dallas Cowboys - 27
Baltimore Ravens - 17
No one really thought the Ravens would go on the road and win this game against Dallas, but they certainly made it again. After Baltimore fired their offensive coordinator, they are still making head-scratching calls. While averaging over 6.0 yards per carry, the team abandoned the run early and leaned on a very inconsistent Joe Flacco. A big loss for the Ravens, who’s road to the finish line only gets more difficult.
Week 12 Opponent: BAL vs. CIN
Buffalo Bills - 16
Cincinnati Bengals - 12
To think the Bengals would be struggling as much as they are has to shock everyone, but that is the truth of the situation with Marvin Lewis and company. The loss was bad, only scoring 12 points was bad, but what might have been the cherry on the sundae was the potential loss of A.J. Green for the year with a torn hamstring. The team is awaiting an MRI, but it doesn’t look good for Green, and the Bengals’ future.
Week 12 Opponent: CIN at BAL
Pittsburgh Steelers - 24
Cleveland Browns - 9
The Steelers ended their 4-game losing streak, and officially ended the Browns’ playoff hopes. The 0-11 Browns now turn their attention to the 2017 NFL Draft, while Pittsburgh hopes to rattle off several wins to win the division and claim their spot in the postseason. This game was closer than the final score would indicate, but at this point the Steelers will just be glad to finally win a game again.
Week 12 Opponent: PIT at Colts (Thursday Night Football)
Week 12 Opponent: CLE vs. Giants
Updated AFC North Standings thru Week 11:
Baltimore Ravens - 5-5
Pittsburgh Steelers - 5-5
Cincinnati Bengals - 3-6-1
Cleveland Browns - 0-11
