Morning take: Brady 'begging' refs for help

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

Morning take: Brady can joke about it, but I doubt the Ravens think it's very funny. Baltimore isn't too far removed from the "flag toss" game.

Morning take: I talked to Cribbs' agent last night, and if nothing changes it sounds that way. A $1.4 million offer is low for a player of his caliber.

Morning take: There were conflicting reports about Arians, but he’s safe. It will be interesting to see if the Steelers make any additional changes.

Morning take: This game will not be pretty. Expect a low-scoring affair between two run-first teams.
