The Baltimore Ravens had a chance today to pull to within a game-and-a-half of  the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North, but the Cleveland Browns ruined those plans. Led by backup QB Jason Campbell, the undermanned Browns scored a huge home win over their hated division rivals and kept Cincinnati atop the North with a 6-3 record, two-and-a-half games better than the now 3-5 Ravens.

It’s also key because the Bengals head to Baltimore next week to face the Ravens, and the last time the Bengals won their was in 2009 when they swept the Ravens en route to winning the division. But after having just lost their best player in Geno Atkins, not to mention multiple key starters looking doubtful or questionable for the contest.

It will be tough task to come out of Baltimore with a win, and had the Ravens won today, a win next week would have pulled the Ravens to within half a game of first place.
