The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 17-13 Sunday in a game much closer than anticipated, and it's a good thing they did, as their two main threats in the division also posted wins. A quick look at Week 6 in the AFC North:
Baltimore Ravens 29, Houston Texans 14: The Ravens improved to 4-1 overall and 3-0 at M&T Bank Stadium with a victory over the Andre Johnson-less Texans, thanks to five field goals from Billy Cundiff and some stout second half defense. Houston is now 0-5 against Baltimore since joining the NFL in 2002.
Cincinnati Bengals 27, Indianapolis Colts 17: The Bengals are 4-2. The Bengals are the top-ranked defense in the NFL. I'll just let that marinate for a moment. Cincinnati kept the Colts on pace to draft Andrew Luck, as they matched last year's win total with Sunday's victory thanks to a late blocked field goal. The Bengals are tied with the Steelers at 4-2, but are 1-0 in AFC North play as opposed to Pittsburgh's 0-1 mark.
Oakland Raiders 24, Cleveland Browns 17: Just win, baby. The immortal words of Al Davis, and what his Raiders did against the Browns in Week 6. The Browns could barely muster any offense, rushing for just 65 yards and quarterback Colt McCoy was mediocre at best, completing just 21 of 45 passes for 215 yards. The Browns fall to 2-3 with the loss.
