The AFC North blog got off to a successful 3-1 start in Week 1. The Pittsburgh Steelers' narrow win in overtime prevented a perfect record.

But we're going to keep the momentum going all season with "Walker's AFC North picks." Here are my division picks for Week 2 (all times are ET):

Kansas City Chiefs (1-0) at Cleveland Browns (0-1), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: Injuries and instability at quarterback make it hard to pick the Browns, especially after the Chiefs looked pretty good last week beating the San Diego Chargers.

Pick: Chiefs, 20-17

Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) at Tennessee Titans (1-0), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: The Steelers proved me wrong last week. Still, I like Tennessee's aggressive, no-name defense against Pittsburgh's inexperience quarterback: Dennis Dixon. Home team wins in a hard-hitting, low-scoring game.

Pick: Titans, 17-13

Baltimore Ravens (1-0) at Cincinnati Bengals (0-1), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: Quarterback Carson Palmer is 8-3 against the Ravens, who are coming off a short week. But I'm not sure I can trust Cincinnati after what I saw early against the New England Patriots.

Pick: Ravens, 21-17

Last week's record: 3-1

Overall record: 3-1

Record in non-overtime games: 3-0 (wink, wink)
