Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North: Morning take: I liked both of these players coming out of the draft in 2008, and I'm not surprised Flacco and Ryan experienced instant success. I'm in Atlanta covering this game tonight and looking forward to it.
Morning take: This is one of the few bright spots for the Bengals. But any team with Peyton Manning is dangerous, especially with the way Cincinnati is playing.
Morning take: Hillis didn't get many opportunities in Denver and now is making the most of his shot in Cleveland. The Brady Quinn-for-Hillis trade may go down as the most lopsided deal this past offseason.
Morning take: The Browns embarrassed the Patriots last week, so I expect a solid effort from New England. Will it be enough in Heinz Field?
