1st: Baltimore is still the top team in the division and remains first in line for the throne
Everyone is scrambled together at the bottom while they look up at the Ravens inching closer to the division title. Baltimore has been the most consistent team in the AFC North this season and it is not even close. They sit at a 7-2 record, but it could actually be better if they did not play a couple of sloppy games. There is still a lot of football left to be played though.
In somewhat of a shocking outcome, Baltimore destroyed the visiting Seattle Seahawks last week. Most thought it would be a quality game that came down to the wire. That did not happen, and the Ravens were able to embarrass Seattle. Baltimore seems to be the leader of the pack unless they find ways to lose ballgames down the line.
They have been the most consistent of all four clubs in the division and they have a chance to get even closer to the AFC North crown with a win this upcoming weekend. The Ravens will be home to face off against the Browns. It is going to be a battle as Cleveland's defense does not give up many points and Baltimore's offense is firing on all cylinders.
It is a must-win game for the Browns if they want any shot at the divisional throne come the end of the season. If Baltimore wins this one, then it seems like it will be nearly impossible for them to lose a grasp on their division lead. Right now, they are the best team in the AFC North and it seems like that might not change anytime soon.
