Morning take: Flacco preps for big week


Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Here are the most interesting story lines from this weekend in the AFC North:

Morning take: Although we've predicted Flacco would be the starter in Week 1 since June, no one would've guessed it would come under these circumstances.

Morning take: It's difficult to predict anything the Bengals do these days. The team mentioned these moves were performance-based, but we're certain money also had a lot to do with it.

Morning take: Players in Cleveland have talked about this game for months. Most will probably tough it out to play against the Dallas Cowboys.
