In Bengals news, Corey Dillon is not happy with the Cincinnati Bengals Ring of Honor. Also, who will win the AFC North this year?

Dillon played for the Bengals for seven seasons after the franchise spent a second-round pick on him in the 1997 NFL Draft. Dillon is arguably the best running back in Bengals history and leads the franchise in rushing yards with 8,061 yards.

Let's shift gears to the present day AFC North. The Bengals are the favorites to win the division but a case could easily be made for any of the other three teams to win the AFC North in the 2023 season.

Davenport pegged the Browns as a surprising candidate to win the AFC North in 2023.

"The Browns already had a talented roster. Nick Chubb may be the best pure runner in the NFL, and Cleveland possesses one of the best offensive lines in the league. If Schwartz's defense is improved and Watson can regain his Pro Bowl form, this is a playoff-caliber roster."
