With Week 8 of the NFL schedule officially in the books , at least for the AFC North, it’s time to take a look back at those teams who call the AFC North home to see how they fared and what the standings look like after this week’s action.

The first goal for each team in the NFL is to win its division. Doing so guarantees both a playoff spot and a home Greg Lloyd Jersey  playoff game, so even these early-season games are important when it comes to divisional rankings. Let’s take a spin around the AFC North to check on the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.Week 8 ResultsCarolina Panthers - 36 Baltimore Ravens - 21Don’t let the score fool you. This game wasn’t that close. Joe Flacco left a lot to be desired, and Lamar Jackson actually threw a touchdown pass. The Steelers come to M&T Bank Stadium Sunday, and if Pittsburgh walks out of Baltimore with a win, and Flacco is less than impressive Ben Roethlisberger Color Rush Jersey , you can expect the cries for Jackson to start getting louder.Cincinnati Bengals - 37Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 34OTIt looked like the Bengals were going to run away with this game, but Ryan Fitzpatrick took over for the benched Jameis Winston, and Fitzmagic almost struck again. Sending the game into overtime, Randy Bullock nailed a 44-yard field goal to give the Bengals the win. The Bengals win keeps them right in the thick of things after dropping back-to-back games. Pittsburgh Steelers - 33Cleveland Browns - 18The Steelers let the Browns hang around longer than they probably should have, but it was good to see them pull away in the second half. Just think...if not for the free kick gaffe, and the garbage time touchdown, the defense very well could have held the Browns to 6 points. I know, it is the Browns https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Terrell-Edmunds-Jersey , but still impressive.Week 9 SchedulePittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens — 1 p.m. ET kickoffKansas City Chiefs at Cleveland Browns — 1 p.m. ET kickoffCincinnati Bengals — BYE WEEKAFC North StandingsPittsburgh Steelers - 4-2-1Cincinnati Bengals - 5-3Baltimore Ravens - 4-4Cleveland Browns - 2-5-1...Let us know what you think about the division after Week 8 in the comment section below.

What is crazy were the rumors circulating the Browns on how Greg Williams’ first week at the helm resulted in the team’s best practices of the season. Seems the players aren’t afraid of throwing a little dirt on Hue Jackson’s grave as the head coach.Pittsburgh Steelers - 23Baltimore Ravens - 16The Steelers put a very large dagger into the hearts of the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. The loss was Baltimore’s third in a row as they limp into their bye week. While the Steelers won their fourth game in a row, the Ravens are now left with questions about their head coach and their starting quarterback.Week 10 ScheduleCarolina Panthers at Pittsburgh Steelers - Thursday Night Football - 8:00 p.m. ETNew Orleans Saints at Cincinnati Bengals - Sunday - 1:00 p.m. ETAtlanta Falcons at Cleveland Browns - Sunday - 1:00 p.m. ETAFC North StandingsPittsburgh Steelers - 5-2-1Cincinnati Bengals - 5-3Baltimore Ravens - 4-5Cleveland Browns - 2-6-1...Let us know what you think about the division after Week 8 in the comment section below.
