Morning take: Time for Dixon or Batch?

Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North: Morning take: That would leave Dennis Dixon or Charlie Batch. Based on reps this summer, Dixon would be next in line. But this quarterback derby has been unpredictable from the start.
Morning take: This was a much-needed performance from McCoy, who struggled most of the preseason. It was a good ending considering McCoy likely will sit the entire 2010 season.
Morning take: This was a showcase game for Smith. But he didn't help himself, throwing for 237 yards and two interceptions. Smith remains on the Ravens' bubble.
Morning take: Nugent has been hurt most of camp, but when healthy he's produced. The Bengals have a tough decision to make between Nugent and Dave Rayner.
