Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North:
The Cleveland Browns have dropped an astounding 16 passes the past two games.
Morning take: Quarterback Derek Anderson doesn’t throw the easiest ball, but many of these drops are coming right off the hands of receivers. It’s just one of several issues for Cleveland’s struggling offense.
Despite returning to action last week, Pittsburgh Steelers tailback Willie Parker’s toe is still bothering him.
Morning take: Turf toe is much more serious than it sounds. Parker needs to be careful not to do too much too soon.
Former Steelers and Baltimore Ravens defensive back Rod Woodson calls out Baltimore’s secondary.
Morning take: Woodson, a Hall of Famer, knows poor secondary play when he sees it. It will be interesting to see how improved Baltimore's pass defense is after the bye week.
The Chicago Bears will try to get their inconsistent running game going Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Morning take: Chicago's ability or inability to run the football on the road will be huge in this matchup. Don’t forget the AFC North blog will pick this game and others in the division later on Friday.
