Morning take: Steelers out of division race


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

Morning take: A year after sweeping the AFC North, Pittsburgh is currently 1-4 in the division. It’s been that kind of year.

  • Meanwhile, the Browns had eight sacks Thursday against Pittsburgh.

Morning take: It was the highest sack total for Cleveland since 2002. Some were good defense and some were poor offense on Pittsburgh’s part.

Morning take: Baltimore is still in the playoff race at 6-6 with two winnable games coming up against the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears. Before you know it, the Ravens could be 8-6 with two weeks remaining.

Morning take: Coffman was making some strides in training camp and then hit a wall. The Bengals will have to wait until next year to continue his development.
