Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
The Cincinnati Bengals (9-3) are good. But are they elite?
Morning take: We will find out soon. The Bengals play a pair of road games back-to-back against the Minnesota Vikings (10-2) and San Diego Chargers (9-3) that will be telling before the postseason.
Cleveland Browns rookie receiver Brian Robiskie (four catches, 69 yards) flashed potential in a 30-23 loss to the San Diego Chargers.
Morning take: Robiskie caught just one pass all season leading up to Sunday's game. So this is good progress for the second-round draft pick.
Can the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-6) stay together after losing their fourth straight game?
Morning take: Although there have been some small cracks recently, team chemistry and staying together shouldn't be issues for this veteran group. The biggest problem is the product on the field.
The Baltimore Ravens say they won't be fazed Monday by the history and environment of Lambeau Field.
Morning take: Baltimore's defense actually enjoys playing on the road, because the lack of crowd noise helps its communication. We will have more on this game throughout the day.
