AFC North Recap: Division remains wide open after Week 10 action concludes

Week 10 in the 2016 NFL season is in the books. Time to take a look at the week that was within the AFC North.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at New York Giants Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens were all active in Week 10, and after another week is behind us, the standings haven’t changed at all. In fact, if it weren’t for the Ravens and Browns playing each other, it very well could have been another winless week for the AFC North.

Time to take a look at just what went down in Week 10 in the division.

Baltimore Ravens - 28
Cleveland Browns - 7

Thursday Night Football can now be taken out back behind the wood shed and put out of it’s misery. This dreadful game was just what the score would indicate. Nonetheless, the Ravens victory gives them an edge in the division, and keeps the Browns searching for their first win of the season.

Week 11 Opponent: BAL at Dallas
Week 11 Opponent: CLE vs. Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Steelers - 30
Dallas Cowboys - 35

There isn’t much which needs to be said on this website in regards to this game. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” All in a 60-minute football game. When the dust settled the Steelers had their 4th loss in a row, and reeling heading into Week 11.

Week 11 Opponent: PIT at Cleveland

New York Giants - 21
Cincinnati Bengals - 20

The Bengals’ futility on prime time continues as their Monday Night Football game turned south in a hurry. A very sloppy game which could have gone either way, leave it to the Bengals to let a perfect opportunity to climb back into the AFC North race slip through their fingertips.

Week 11 Opponent: CIN vs. Buffalo

AFC North Standings after Week 10

Baltimore Ravens - 5-4
