Steelers: AFC North week 10 power rankings


The AFC North hasn’t changed much from week to week. The Bengals are pretty much locked into the top slot barring a miracle. Pittsburgh has a three game lead on the Browns and Ravens and would be in a wildcard spot if the playoffs started today.

The Steelers need to stay conscious of this and cannot afford to lose winnable games especially at home this week to Cleveland.

56. The Bengals had a pretty easy time at home vs. Cleveland last Thursday night and have really only been challenged twice this season with comeback wins against the Seahawks and the Steelers. As one of two AFC teams still undefeated, they sit very high in the league’s overall power rankings yet despite the impressive record I don’t think that there is that much separation between the Bengals and Steelers. In their lone meeting minus <strong><a href=. (8-0). Previous: 1st. Cincinnati Bengals. 1. team

This team just keeps having to deal with adversity caused by injury. Roethlisberger will be out next week for the Cleveland game and hopefully the bye week is enough time for him to be ready to play again. <strong><a href=. (5-4). Previous: 2nd. Pittsburgh Steelers. 2. team. 55

26. The Ravens get the edge over the Browns because they have one less loss. They are also more stable at the quarterback position but their playoff hopes have all but vanished. While moderately competitive in some of their games the best they can do now is look to play spoiler within the division for the balance of the year. They can look forward to a top 10 draft pick this year.. (2-6). Previous: 3rd. Baltimore Ravens. 3. team

53. <strong><a href=. (2-7). Previous: 4th. Cleveland Browns. 4. team
