Morning take: Flacco carries Ravens

Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North: Morning take: Flacco set new highs for yards (307), touchdowns (3) and attempts (43) in a game. Although it won’t happen every week, it proves “Joe Cool” is ready to carry the team when necessary.
Morning take: The Bengals have had a lot of losses in the past two decades, but this one has to be among the most painful and stunning.
Morning take: I thought the Browns showed some good things in the first half, but their talent pool is simply too bare. Cleveland will have to play near-perfect for an entire game to beat quality teams like Minnesota this season.
Morning take: Coaching stability is quietly a part of this team’s success. The Steelers kept their best players and somehow retain their coaches, as well.
