Sean Higgs AFC North Preview

Higgs is heading to the AFC North in today's preview.

1 CINCY BENGALS - I have had these guys at the top for the last couple years and thought they could break through to a Super Bowl. I think HC Lewis is on the hot seat. This is a talented group. They need to break through sometime. 12 wins last year and a meltdown in the playoffs.

2 PITT STEELERS - High hopes in the Steel City. I think they are very good. But, Big Ben always seems to be banged up or miss a game. They are without Le'Veon Bell for a few games. They are without WR Martavius Bryant all year. The rivalry with Cincy is downright nasty. Those games will probably decide the division.

3 BLT RAVENS - Lots of injuries last year. But the HC and QB remain the same. And that combo has a Super Bowl on the shelf. 5-11 for their first losing season under Harbaugh. This team has some age. 8 starters lost last year and some still getting back into form. Look, they don't have the talent of the Bengals or Steelers. They can make some noise though if the chips fall the right way.

4 CLEV BROWNS - Hue Jackson takes over and looks to use his QB magic on RGIII. Who is looking to finally be healthy and have some OC stability. The team always seem to be rebuilding. This is a very tough conference with a pair of teams that have legit Super Bowl hopes. Browns will just look to make modest improvements and hang tough as they continue to develop and grow players.
