Morning take: Tomlin vs. Morris

Here are the most interesting stories Sunday in the AFC North:

Morning take: Tomlin and Morris spent time coming up together as young assistants in Tampa. Each coach has to be proud of the other for the great job they're doing this season.

Morning take: This will mark Jimmy Clausen's first NFL start for the Panthers. The Bengals will look to rattle an opposing quarterback for the second straight week.

Morning take: Starting the season with two road games is tough, and that's certainly been the case for Flacco. I expect a bounce-back game from the third-year quarterback.

Morning take: Odds do not look good. The Browns were double-digit underdogs entering the week and recent scratches Shaun Rogers and Brian Robiskie do not help.
