AFC North: Predicting the Final Regular Season Standings

It's that wonderful time of year again! 

Thanksgiving is done, Christmas is almost here and we're entering the stretch run of the NFL regular season.  Some teams' seasons were over several games ago, but quite a few others will see their 2011 playoff destinies come together during the next month. 

The AFC North has been a very competitive division this year, as it usually is, but the competition has been even stiffer with the Cincinatti Bengals' quiet rise to relevancy

It's usually a two team race up top between the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but this year all three teams have a legitimate shot at claiming a division title and/or a playoff berth.

With four games left on the schedule for each team, there isn't much time left, and no club has much room for error.  One or two unexpected losses here or there will separate the division winner from the third-place team left sitting at home in the postseason. 

Here are my predictions for how things will look after the season is all finished up, along with one game for each club that will have season-defining implications.
