Here are the most interesting stories in the AFC North:
Morning take: The Ravens have a string of tough road games upcoming, so they need to take advantage of this relatively easy matchup at home.
- Here is a scouting report on the Baltimore Ravens, who will face the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday.
Morning take: Although Browns coach Eric Mangini hasn’t made a formal announcement, this has been the worst-kept secret in sports this week. Quinn should be Cleveland’s third Week 1 quarterback in the past three years.
- The Brady Quinn era likely begins for the Cleveland Browns against the Minnesota Vikings.
Morning take: This is a great battle involving two young players. Dumervil is relentless and often gives bigger tackles problems. Whitworth has to be on his game.
- An interesting matchup to watch in Cincinnati will be Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth against Denver Broncos outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil.
Morning take: Who’s better: Ed Reed’s backup or Troy Polamalu’s backup?
- Pittsburgh Steelers safety Tyrone Carter has huge shoes to fill playing for injured Pro Bowler Troy Polamalu (knee) the next several weeks.
Just kidding, everyone. Enjoy the games and check the AFC North blog Sunday for constant updates.
