Predicting every AFC North game

After sending three teams to the playoffs a year ago, the AFC North is once again as wide open as any division in football. Greg Bedard has predicted the outcome of every single game of the NFL regular season. Here are his picks for the AFC North.

After sending three teams to the playoffs a year ago, the AFC North is once again as wide open as any division in football. If they can avoid the injuries that doomed their playoff run a year ago, the Ravens are positioned to be one of the best teams in football, and they're getting the preseason hype to match that billing. The Steelers have questions to answer on defense before their chances of repeating as division champs can be taken seriously, while the Bengals have their eyes on a fifth consecutive playoff berth—but after that, nothing is certain as long as Andy Dalton is under center. In Cleveland, the Browns have a new veteran ahead of Johnny Manziel in the quarterback pecking order, but does Josh McCown have the firepower to hang with the division's other prolific offenses?

Greg Bedard has predicted the outcome of every single game of the NFL regular season. Below are his picks for the AFC North.
