It's getting to that time in the season where Ravens fans start to watch the AFC North standings. Let's see how some of our divisional rivals held-up today.
Cincinnati Bengals: One time in the season the Bengals were considered the biggest threat to the Ravens for the AFC North title, but due to struggles after a relatively hot start, the Bengals stood at 4-5 going into today's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Due to an impressive performance by Andy Dalton and BenJarvus Green-Ellis, however, the Bengals are once again at .500 (5-5) and are healthily behind Baltimore in the standings. Baltimore can extend their lead on the division with a win today against the dinged up Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cleveland Browns: After what was thought to be one of their strongest draft classes in years, with players including Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden, Cleveland finds themselves in familiar territory with a 2-7 record before today's game against the Dallas Cowboys. While Cleveland put up an honorable fight today (as they have in almost every game this season) they just couldn't pull one out which puts them at 2-8 and dead-last in the AFC North.
