Morning take: Big game for D.A.

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

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

  • This weekend's preseason game against the Detroit Lions could be make-or-break for Cleveland Browns quarterback Derek Anderson.

Morning take: Brady Quinn took the early lead in the first preseason game. If Anderson wants to keep this QB derby competitive, he needs to outperform Quinn in Game 2.

Morning take: Although not every team can pull this off, I agree with Pittsburgh choosing health over workload this summer. The veteran-laden Steelers already know their roles.

  • Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron wants to carry over momentum into his second year.

Morning take: With another year getting to know his personnel, it will be interesting to see what Cameron has up his sleeve. Expect Baltimore's offense and quarterback Joe Flacco to show improvement this year.

Morning take: We will have more on "Hard Knocks" in the next post.
