Bengals hold two-game lead in AFC North with new second place team

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

After Sunday's round of action, the Bengals actually didn't lose any games in the standings but there's a new second-place team in the AFC North.

Heading into Sunday's game, the Bengals held a 2.5-game lead over the AFC North following their 22-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Thursday.

Three days later.

Now the Bengals have a two-game lead over the Cleveland Browns, who beat the Baltimore Ravens 24-18 Sunday afternoon. Cincinnati maintained their 2.5-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens and 3.5-game lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers, who were buried bay by the New England Patriots; Baltimore and Pittsburgh have already had their bye weeks, which accounts for the half-game and will be eliminated once the Bengals and Browns have their respective bye weeks.

AFC NORTH Record Winning Pct.
Cincinnati Bengals 6-3 .667
Cleveland Browns 4-5 .444
Baltimore Ravens 3-5 .375
Pittsburgh Steelers 2-6 .250

We're not accounting for tie-breakers or previous head-to-head match-ups presently because there's four games remaining in the division and seven overall.
