Reasons the Pittsburgh Steelers Are the New AFC North Favorites

After playing their most dominant game of the season, beating the Washington Redskins 27-12, the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to build on their best win streak of the season as they prepare for another tough NFC East matchup next week against the Giants.

The Ravens started the season as heavy favorites to win the North, but injuries have derailed their dominance, and all their games have been decided by 3 points or less, hardly convincing wins to make the claim that they are the jewel of the AFC.

The Browns have exceeded expectations by picking up two wins thus far, and the previously playoff-bound Cincinnati Bengals are not the team they were last year.

While they don't necessarily control their own destiny, Pittsburgh has put themselves into good position to recreate themselves into contenders after ugly losses to the underdog Raiders and Titans

With New York being their greatest test of the season next week, the Steelers have five remaining games against the AFC North, and everyone is starting to believe that they can run the table on their rivals.
