Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
Morning take: Polamalu is a special player with unique skills and a knack for the big moment. He's clearly Pittsburgh's MVP, but should he be considered for NFL MVP?
Cincinnati Enquirer columnist Paul Daugherty believes it's groundhog day once again for the Bengals.
Morning take: Daugherty is right. After 10 consecutive losses these Bengals games start to look alike. Even with an early lead, it was just a matter of time before Cincinnati blew the game.
Morning take: Cundiff has been solid with field goals and terrific with kickoffs. The Ravens will need his leg again tonight against the Houston Texans.
