Football Sunday wrap-up, AFC NORTH
Well, the division as a whole suffered a setback this weekend as all 4 teams lost. While Cleveland's loss does not matter in the playoff race the losses by the other 3 teams were all eerily similar and each team could suffer server ramifications. Turnovers and the lack of running the ball allowed the Chiefs to remain in the game and eventually lose the game, plus Big Ben suffered a concussion ( in OT in a game that should have been over at halftime) and could be out this Sunday for the big game against Baltimore. Cincy suffered a heart-breaking loss by fumbling the kickoff with 30 seconds to go in a tie game at Oakland. While Baltimore's late turnovers did them in against Indy. basically, neither Baltimore or Pittsburgh was able to take advantage of the Cincy loss and Cincy was unable to capitalize on both of them losing. The end result, each tame is in the exact same position as last week in the division race.
