AFC North: The best (and most unpredictable) division in 2014 -
This past offseason, I wrote a column predicting that the AFC North would prove to be the most topsy-turvy and impossible division to forecast in 2014. Well, it has lived up to that billing -- and then some. The AFC North is clearly the best division in the NFL. Adding to the intrigue: Ten weeks into the season, there is zero clarity.

CINCINNATI: Bengals receiver AJ Green not all the way back | NFL Football |
A.J. Green hasn't made much of an impact since he returned from a toe injury, and the Bengals need that to change if they're going to get their offense turned around.

A day after Saints tight end Jimmy Graham insisted he didn't push off on what would have been a game-winning 47-yard touchdown pass in regulation against the 49ers, Graham admitted that he may have used his hands to get Cox out of the way.

NFL And NFLPA Locked In Dispute Over Adrian Peterson's Reinstatement

The dispute surrounding Adrian Peterson's reinstatement—or lack thereof—after pleading no contest to child injury charges is heating up. Late last week the NFL Players Association sent a letter to the NFL demanding Peterson be reinstated. That tactic apparently failed, as today the NFLPA announced that it had filed a grievance on Peterson's behalf:
