Combined Record: 31-21
Without a doubt in my mind, the AFC North, from top to bottom, is the best division in the NFL. Baltimore and Pittsburgh make up one of the best modern rivalries in the sport. They hate each other so much and whenever these two teams meet, it's must-watch football.
Throw a red-hot Cincinnati team in the mix and you have one great division. The 7-6 Bengals are deep in the chase for the wild card and have only lost in division as well as to Denver, San Fran and Houston by one. Andy Dalton and A.J. Green should make this division fun to watch in the coming years.
Pittsburgh is 10-3 and besides losing by a touchdown in Houston, the Steelers has only lost in division. Pittsburgh is one of the better teams in the AFC and is a team made for the playoffs. Expect a deep run again for the Steelers.
The Ravens are also tied for first in the AFC North and own quality wins over Pittsburgh, NY Jets, Houston, Cincy and San Fran. The Ravens are battling for the No. 1 seed in the AFC and the division crown.
I said that this is the best division in football top to bottom. The top is great, the middle is great and even the bottom is good. The 4-9 Cleveland Browns are the best bottom dwellers in the league. I would take them over Kansas City.
This is a very, very good division and should get even better down the road.
