The Cincinnati Bengals tried to set NFL offenses back five decades with their play today in a 17-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns, and because the Baltimore Ravens lost on the road today to the Buffalo Bills, a game in which Joe Flacco tossed 5 interceptions , the Bengals, Browns and Ravens are now both tied atop the AFC North.

The Ravens hold a technical tiebreaker at he moment because they do not yet have a loss in the division (1-0 vs Bengals’ and Browns’ 1-1 record), but with 12 games left, it’s basically a tie atop the AFC North after the first-quarter of the season.

No one would have ever guessed that would be the case after four weeks, nor would they have guessed the Pittsburgh Steelers would start 0-4 and be seemingly out of the playoff mix after the first month.

It may be safe to say the AFC North as been the most surprising division this year, and by the looks of it, will be the most exciting one to watch down the stretch.
