SCU’s AFC North Preview is a quick overview of the Steelers division opponents and their upcoming games.
Half of the AFC North goes dormant this weekend as the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers each enter their bye week. However, that hasn’t prevented the winless Browns from somehow even botching their week off!
Leading up to the NFL’s trade deadline, Cleveland attempted to be a mover and shaker. They saw the 49ers land Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, a player that the Browns apparently coveted heading into the regular season. Still seeking a QB, Cleveland had a deal on the table with the Cincinnati Bengals to acquire their backup, A.J. McCarron but didn’t submit the paperwork in time. The trade was rejected.
At least the Browns can’t do any more damage to themselves on Sunday, while the Ravens and Bengals each try to gain some ground on the 6-2 Steelers. The Ravens travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans, while the Bengals also hit the road to play the surprising Jacksonville Jaguars.
