Fantasy Football AFC North Review Standings
The AFC North saw Cincinnati and Pittsburgh enter the playoffs, this past year. Baltimore and especially Cleveland sunk in the bottom of the standing, with both team having to deal with more than football trouble.
- Cincinnati Bengals (12-4)
It was more of the same for the Cincinnati Bengals. Making it through to the Wild Card round of the playoffs for the fifth straight year, but falling short a first playoff win in over 25 years. Even though they took the top spot in the AFC East, they’ve lost to their divisional rivals, Pittsburgh Steelers, in the first playoff game. Since taking over the team in 2003, Marvin Lewis racked up a 0-7 record in the post-season. He has the most playoffs losses among coaches that have never won a single post-season game. We can help but to feel for the guy.
- Pittsburgh Steelers (10-6)
It was a battle for “Big Ben”, throughout the season. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback dealt with a sprained MCL early in the season, resulting him missing four games. The result was not too bad though, as the combo of Michael Vick and Landry Jones were 2-2. Antonio Brown proved once again why he is the best wide receiver in the league, collecting a total of 1,834 rushing yards and 10 TD’s against the best defensive oppositions.
- Baltimore Ravens (5-11)
With so much expectation coming from countless predictors, with even some speculating a Super Bowl appearance, it was nothing more than a disappointment for the Baltimore Ravens. It’s been a season riddled with injuries for John Harbaughs team. No less than 22 of their players were placed under the injured reserve list. QB Joe Flacco, RB Justin Forsett and OLB Terrell Suggs were among those who left sometime during the season, due to injury, and never came back. It was the first time in eight years, under the coaching of Harbaugh that the Ravens suffered a losing season.
- Cleveland Browns (3-13)
The Johnny Manziel experiment proved to be a complete failure. The one who was supposed to reinvigorate Cleveland with new life wasn’t able to keep his personal life in check and did little on the gridiron to warrant himself a franchise tag. The Browns finished tied with the Tennessee Titans for worst in the NFL. The team took no time to fire head coach Mike Pettine and GM Ray Farmer after the end of the season.
