Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
The Pittsburgh Steelers begin preparation for the New York Jets in the AFC title game.
Morning take: Most expected the New England Patriots, but the Steelers are happy to stay home this week. Pittsburgh will need to examine the mistakes it made in a loss to New York in the regular season.
Did the Baltimore Ravens "choke" in their playoff loss to the Steelers?
Morning take: Baltimore took a two-touchdown lead into the second half. But I agree with this article that Pittsburgh simply played lights out in the third and fourth quarters.
The Cleveland Browns are waiting to interview Philadelphia Eagles assistant Dick Jauron for their defensive coordinator job.
Morning take: The Eagles just fired their defensive coordinator, Sean McDermott. So that could be a snag if Jauron becomes the top candidate in Philadelphia.
In a story from this weekend, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski is operating like it's business as usual.
Morning take: I'm hearing different things right now about Cincinnati's coaching staff. But although this can change at any minute, I'm not expecting too many changes.
