Steelers Strong Favorites To Win AFC North, But Are Bengals Far Behind?

The AFC North is expected to be a much improved division this season. It’s fair to say all four teams appear to have significantly improved their roster from last year and are expected to put up more of a fight this year, as opposed to last year when only the 11-5 Steelers recorded a winning record.

There was a good chunk of the season in 2016 when all four teams were struggling—to an extent—and the AFC North was up for grabs deep into the year. The Bengals were in the midst of a 6-9-1 season, yet still had a significant chance to turn things around and win the division throughout much of the year.

The Steelers turned things around to win their last seven games in a row and finished with the division crown. But, before that, they were 4-5, coming off a four game losing streak after Week 10, exposing their lack of a stranglehold on the weak division.
