The Bengals and Steelers both lost ground to the Ravens last week, so this divisional game (the first of the season for Pittsburgh) takes on added importance.
The Browns have a new owner and a new feeling around the team, coming off their first win of the season. This will be a rematch of sorts between two rookie QBs who faced each other when Oklahoma State played Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl. That time, Brandon Weeden led his team to a victory over Andrew Luck's team. Will history repeat itself?
Only two teams in the AFC have winning records... and they play each other today in the game of the week. The Texans are hoping to recover from an embarrassing blowout loss last week to the Packers, while the Ravens are dealing with the absence of Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb due to injury.
In the only Sunday game for the division this weekend, the Cincinnati Bengals try to keep pace with the Ravens at the top of the AFC North with a game in Jacksonville.
The NFL and the officials' union came to an agreement just in time to get the regular officials back for Thursday night's divisional battle between the Browns and Ravens. Baltimore's fans are surely hoping it won't be a nerve-wracking experience like last week's narrow win over the Patriots in the midst of a flurry of disputed calls. The Browns are one of three teams still looking for their first win.
Last January, the New England Patriots squeaked by the Ravens to win the AFC Championship. It's time for a rematch.
