Morning take: Steelers prepare for Jets

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.

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.

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.
