Morning take: Bad day for Ochocinco?


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

  • Will Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco struggle again with the Pittsburgh Steelers?

Morning take: Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau usually takes Ochocinco out of games and allows other players to beat them. Ochocinco lost his cool as a result in their first meeting.

  • Steelers starting right tackle Flozell Adams says he expects to start against Cincinnati, despite an ankle sprain.

Morning take: Pittsburgh's offensive line could certainly use Adams. With Max Starks (neck) already on injured reserve, the Steelers are thin at tackle.

  • Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Chris Chester responds to claims that he made a "dirty" play against Steelers linebacker James Harrison.

Morning take: Chester says it was a mix up of calls and he went to block Harrison. Both sides had their say and now it's time to move on.

Morning take: The Browns are built to win ugly, and it could be that kind of game against the Bills. Look for Cleveland tailback Peyton Hillis to get plenty of carries.
