The AFC North is a division that will bear watching in 2012. Three of the four teams made the playoffs last season and all four teams seemingly made positive moves in the offseason. A colleague here at Stripehype will be doing a preview of each division, so I won’t be doing that, but I would like to give my own, in-depth preview of the division that the Bengals call home. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens are the prohibitive favorites once again, but the Cincinnati Bengals have become somewhat of a media darling in 2012. All three of the teams are again expected to compete for playoff spots. The fourth team, the Cleveland Browns, aren’t expected to be in the divisional race just yet, but made some positive moves this offseason and the future looks much brighter. I will now preview each team with my predictions on how they’ll do in 2012.
