Morning take: Ravens' Mattison making mark

By James Walker

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

Morning take: Despite some rough stretches earlier this year, the Ravens are third in the NFL in total defense. Mattison deserves a lot of credit for that.

Morning take: Expect new president Mike Holmgren to watch a ton of film on the Browns between now and free agency. Harrison and Vickers look like keepers, but there are several more difficult decisions that await.

Morning take: This was an easy pick. But it would be an interesting debate on who is more important to the team: Roethlisberger or safety Troy Polamalu?

Morning take: Linebacker is probably the area Cincinnati has the most depth this year. Jeanty isn't green. He started 15 games in 2008.
