Morning take: Pittsburgh's specialty player

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

  • Backup tailback Mewelde Moore continues to be a good utility player for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Morning take: For someone who gets limited playing time, Moore seems to make a lot of big plays. In the recent win over the San Diego Chargers, Moore threw a touchdown pass to tight end Heath Miller in the back of the end zone.

  • Baltimore Ravens rookie Dannell Ellerbe passed the test with six tackles in his NFL debut at linebacker against the New England Patriots.

Morning take: The Ravens have been high on the rookie free agent for quite some time, and when opportunity knocked, Ellerbe was ready.

  • The Buffalo Bills (1-3) are also struggling like the Cleveland Browns (0-4).

Morning take: This is a winnable game for Cleveland, even on the road. The Browns need to continue building off the momentum of last week.

  • The Cincinnati Bengals may have found another receiving threat in tight end J.P. Foschi, who led the team with four catches against Cleveland.

Morning take: I was impressed with Foschi’s hands and ability to get downfield last week. The Bengals are hurting at tight end this season but continue to find players at the position.
