The most likely candidate to challenge Cincinnati's path to win the AFC North remains the Baltimore Ravens, who are coming off a Super Bowl championship and remain 2.5 games behind the Bengals. That being said, they're struggling without a capable running game as Ray Rice is dealing with his injuries that he's playing through.
The Ravens announced that they've signed former Bengals running back Bernard Scott on Monday.

Baltimore worked out Scott two weeks ago.
The Bengals waived Scott off of the team's Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List in mid-September. Considering the team had stocked up on running backs during the draft while Scott was rehabilitating from a torn ACL in 2012, there just wasn't any room for him when he was scheduled to come off PUP. Scott posted 1,035 yards rushing and four touchdowns in his career with the Bengals.
