The Pittsburgh Steelers are not playing this week due to a Covid-19 outbreak within the Tennessee Titans organization.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently in first place in the AFC north going into Week 4. Even though they don’t have the chance to obtain another win this week, they are the only undefeated team in their division. Division standings are actually decided by winning percentage and as a result, the Steelers will retain their seat at the top of the division through this week regardless of what happens.

The Baltimore Ravens are facing off against the Washington Football Team, the Cincinnati Bengals are taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Cleveland Browns are playing the Dallas Cowboys. While the Ravens and Browns are facing off against NFC teams, the Bengals are looking to take on the 1-2 Jaguars in hopes of getting their first win of the season. They are hoping to do this against the only team the AFC north is matching up against from within the same conference.

The Ravens are looking to distance themselves from the Browns, even while soundly beating them in week 1, who are currently tied with them in win percentage and are right there for 2nd place. The Bengals are looking to get their first win. If they were to win their next two games, and the Browns lost their next two games, then the Bengals would take the 3rd spot in the division. They will be relying on rookie sensation Joe Burrow to carry them through this matchup. The Browns are looking to bring themselves back in the hunt for the division crown. They are only one game behind Baltimore currently, as both teams have the same winning percentage. Baltimore has a slight edge in the standings due to winning the first head to head match up.

They, for the most part, should be good games. There will be fun matchups to watch across the board while the Pittsburgh Steelers’ biggest rivals are looking to make some moves in the division standings.
