First off, I am glad the Ravens won yesterday. It stings that they won it, AGAIN, but it will work out for the Bengals next season. Flacco's price tag just went over the top with his performance in this years playoffs and they will most likely have to cut Reed and Lewis is retiring (will miss his leadership, not so much his play).
Anyways, my whole point of this post its to discuss the AFC North and how they are the best in the league. AFC North usually generates a team that goes to the AFC championship and we have had our fair share of championships between the Steelers and Ravens. Hopefully, it will be the Bengals turn sooner than later.
I didn't look up stats to prove that the AFC North is the best division but I think its worth discussing. I will update this post later today, I just wanted to get this going before heading out to work today.
