AFC North Will Have a New Champion This Year

Baltimore Ravens

You NFL old-timers and purists probably know that the AFC North is the only division in the NFL that isn’t tainted by a charter team from the original American Football League (AFL). Just pure, undiluted NFL. Almost.

The Bengals were an AFL expansion team, but Paul Brown allowed that only with the condition that the Bengals would join the NFL after the two leagues merged and became the NFL in 1970.

Believe it or not, the division has produced only two Super Bowl champions: The Steelers have won six in eight appearances and the Ravens have won two, including the most recent one.

It’s a competitive division: Only the Browns had a losing record this past season. The other three teams had a combined 28-20 record, with the Steelers breaking even at 8-8.

The division will have a new champion this year. Here are my AFC North previews and predictions. Don’t be alarmed, and speak up if you’re feeling frisky.
