The Pittsburgh Steelers wouldn't be happy saying so, but each AFC North team started the year off without a loss, even the Cleveland Browns, who got off to their best start since 2004!


The Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals both had actual wins. You know, the real ones that go into the left-most column of the standings. 


However, despite the impressive all-around showing, not much has changed according to the oddsmakers. Heading into Week 2, the Steelers are still the overwhelming favorites to take the AFC North.

While the other three teams made a statement this past weekend, they're still not on the same level as the reigning division champs. The Steelers have one of the best rosters in football and probably the best roster in the division, even without Le'Veon Bell lining up in the backfield. That's likely the reason for this line, however after that Week 1 performance, it's understandable if you're concerned.
