Around The AFC North: Cleveland Browns Hire Dick Jauron As Defensive Coordinator

This is a look at the AFC North through the eyes of our SB Nation brothers.

+ Behind The Steel Curtain looks into the numbers for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the New York Jets.

+ Dawgs by Nature wonders if Dick Jauron could be headed to the Cleveland Browns as the team's defensive coordinator after Dave Wannstedt joined the Buffalo Bills as the linebackers coach and assistant head coach. The decision could be made as soon as Friday. (Note: The Plain-Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot writes that Jauron is the new defensive coordinator).

+ On Thursday we wrote that the Bengals had shown some interest with Illinois' offensive guard Randall Hunt during practices leading to the East-West Shrine Game. The Ravens reportedly also showed interest.

+ The Ravens fired their offensive line coach on Wednesday after Joe Flacco was sacked 40 times and Ray Rice recorded a career-low 4.0 yards/rush in 2010. According to Baltimore Beatdown, Andy Moeller, the team's assistant offensive line coach will be promoted to the job.

+ Baltimore Beatdown asks how one can measure improvement; more specifically, can Joe Flacco improve to get the Ravens to the Super Bowl.
