The race for the AFC North is now likely down to the Bengals, Ravens and Steelers, as the Cleveland Browns dropped to 47-7 with their home-loss to Pittsburgh today. Browns quarterback Jason Campbell was knocked out of the game after he was taken to the ground on a pass play and landed on his injured ribs.

He did return to the game, only to be blindsided by Steelers cornerback William Gay and did not return. Brandon Weeden came on in for relief of him, but like every other chance he’s had to play this year, he’s been ineffective and unable to keep the Browns offense on the field. At 4-7 record with three  of their final five games on the road, the Browns look to be toast as far as competing for a playoff spot goes.

With that being said, here are the updated AFC north standings:

AFC NORTH W L T PCT HOME ROAD DIV CONF PF PA DIFF STRK
Cincinnati 7 4 0 .636 5-0-0 2-4-0 2-2-0 5-3-0 275 206 +69 Won 1
