Morning take: Position change for Cousins?

8/14/2011

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

Morning take: This is the best move right now for Baltimore. It's unknown if Cousins will do well at right guard, but it's clear he's struggling at right tackle. The Ravens have three preseason games to figure it out.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor (thumb) will likely have surgery but should be ready for the regular-season opener against Baltimore.

Morning take: Taylor and the Steelers do not have anything to prove in the preseason. Getting healthy for the Ravens should be the biggest priority.

Morning take: Neither the starters nor the reserves played well for Cincinnati. The team needs to study this film and fix all that went wrong quickly.

  • The Cleveland Browns' West Coast offense looked good in their 27-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers.

Morning take: Browns head coach Pat Shurmur also is the offensive coordinator and did a good job Saturday. I don't overrate the preseason, but Cleveland's offensive concepts looked solid compared to the past two seasons.
