2010 AFCN Preview

Recommended Posts

The NFC East and the AFC East may have the glamour reps and the big markets, but no division in the NFL last season featured three winning teams except the rough-and-tumble AFC North. The Bengals, Ravens and Steelers all finished above .500, and the hottest club of all at the close of 2009 were those last-place Cleveland Browns, who took a hope-inspiring four-game winning streak into the offseason.


It was no fluke. Things have been that competitive within the division for a while now. The AFC North was one of only two divisions in the just-passed NFL decade to feature a pair of Super Bowl winners (along with the NFC South), and no other team in the conference has boasted either a pair of playoff teams or at least two 10-win teams in four of the past five seasons. With the Bengals, Steelers and Ravens all winning at least one North crown in the past four years, there's not another division in the AFC that can match its record of balance.

That's funny. Peter King has the Steelers winning the Super Bowl, finish third in this article.



I'm tired of all the predictions let the season start. Injuries will probably determine the winner of the ACFN. I won't be surprised if the Steelers, Bengals or Ravens won the division.


This was basically Kings words as well... Ravens and Steelers as could be SB contenders if, and Bengals winning the division.

I was thinking about this today...



and they've become a tough-minded team that is capable of playing its game and winning anywhere, against any level of competition

There's not 1 team on their schedule that they can't match up with and beat. Will they win them all...of course not...somebody will beat them, but only because of the 'every given Sunday' thing.
