AFC North standings: Steelers still last, but gaining steam
The AFC North gets ready for their week six battles after the Steelers, Ravens, Browns, and Bengals finished up last week.
It was an up and down week for the AFC North division. It was good for a team like the Steelers that saw them gain some ground back with a victory over the weekend. More positive news for the black and gold came when the Browns and Bengals were both defeated in their respective matchups.
It was an interesting week that saw Pittsburgh squeak out a win after letting a big lead slip away. They held on and won the game after losing three weeks in a row. The Bengals lost an odd game that saw an ungodly amount of missed field goals and missed opportunities.
The Browns were in a great fight of offensive football that saw them run out of time and lose the game in sunny California. It was a complete shootout that saw the Chargers win on their home field. The Ravens are still scheduled to play upon writing this article.
Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) vs Detroit Lions (0-5), Sunday at 1 P.M. ET
The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off a tough loss that should’ve never happened. They had many opportunities to defeat the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday but they couldn’t accomplish that task. They missed field goals and had turnovers which would eventually cost them the game. Cincinnati had a great shot at sitting at a 4-1 record but bad special teams play has them sitting at 3-2.
They head to Detroit to play the struggling Lions this upcoming weekend. This battle of cats shouldn’t be much of a contest come game time. The Lions will be very desperate for a win but they can’t muster much.
This Bengals offense is going to feast on the Detroit defensive secondary. The blue and silver team have a bunch of issues on both sides of the football and they will struggle against this black and orange squad. The away club should win this game by 10 or more points when it’s all said and done.
