AFC North standings heading into Week 4 of the 2021 NFL schedule
Week three around the AFC North has come and gone so it is time to recap those games and look forward to week four.
Another week has wrapped up for the Bengals, Browns, Ravens, and Steelers. With another week comes more results with twists and turns of records around the AFC North.
It was an overall successful week when you look at the division as a whole, except for the Steelers. The black and gold were the only team to lose out of the grouping. The Ravens and Browns beat their nemesis that were both severe underdogs when compared to their AFC North rival. It saw a beatdown by the Browns and a tink-in field goal for the Ravens to get past a potential upset and win their game.
Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3) vs Cincinnati Bengals (2-1), Thursday at 8:20 P.M. ET
The Jacksonville Jaguars head to Cincinnati to play the Bengals in the jungle. This Thursday Night game is not expected to be very competitive between these two as many expect the Bengals to wipe the floor with the visiting club.
The Jaguars did give the Arizona Cardinals fits last week and almost caused an upset. The orange and black cats seek to improve their record after a huge road win in Pittsburgh this past weekend. It saw them cause major issues for the opposition’s offense and expose a deflated defense. They took care of business and won fairly easily.
They should similarly beat the Jaguars as this away squad is still rebuilding and struggling to put things together on game days. It is a short week so healing up from an AFC North battle could be a cause for concern but this Bengals offense is just too good to not outscore a lesser opponent right now.
