Morning take: Lewis' career comes to end

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

Morning take: Lewis finished with a Super Bowl ring with the Baltimore Ravens and more than 10,000 rushing yards. It was a very good run for Lewis.

Morning take: Clayton has always been a bit of an enigma in Baltimore. He would put up huge 100-yard receiving games then disappear for a couple of weeks. The Ravens need him to stay involved the rest of the year.

Morning take: This is the second straight week Pittsburgh is searching for help on special teams. Last week it was the punt coverage, not kickoff coverage, which was lacking.

Morning take: It’s really going to come down to matchups. There are playoff teams Cincinnati should play well against and others it may have a tough time beating. That's why it’s vital to secure the second seed, a home playoff game, and a bye in the first round.
