1. Steelers (10-6)
2. Ravens (7-9)
3. Browns (6-10)
4. Bengals (4-12)
The Pittsburgh Steelers will win a third consecutive AFC North title, and a fourth in five years. The division has been dominated by Pittsburgh in recent seasons, and I don’t see that changing just yet.
Despite having a strong defense, there are too many question marks surrounding the Baltimore Ravens’ offense. For that reason, I see it being another frustrating season for the Ravens, who could turn to rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson sooner than later.
The Cleveland Browns will win six games of regular season football. You read that right. The Cleveland Browns will win six games. I like the work general manager John Dorsey has done this offseason, and in time the Browns could become a playoff contender with Baker Mayfield at quarterback. For now, Tyrod Taylor will help Cleveland improve on the team’s worst ever season in 2017.
It will be another disappointing year for the Cincinnati Bengals, who finish last for the first time in eight years.
I predict the AFC North will only send one team to the playoffs.
