Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun writes Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison was once cut by the Ravens.
Morning take: Harrison couldn't find the field in Baltimore and also had to wait his turn in Pittsburgh. But today he's more than making up for lost time.
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers tailback Willie Parker says the team needs to re-emphasize the running game.
Morning take: With back-to-back road games against the Ravens and Tennessee Titans, our guess is Pittsburgh's struggles continue on the ground.
Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer provides a scouting report of the Browns' next opponent in the Philadelphia Eagles (7-5-1).
Morning take: The Browns (4-9) are 2-0 on "Monday Night Football" this year. Do they have one more magic trick left?
Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com writes free-agent pickup Antwan Odom plans to return from a shoulder injury this week against the Washington Redskins.
Morning take: We wonder if, looking back, Odom would've accepted less money to stay with Tennessee this year?
