On Wednesday, our Cincinnati Bengals affiliate, Cincy Jungle, ran a poll asking which AFC North team fans felt would be the toughest challenge to their team in 2013. Not surprisingly, only 5% of fans picked the Browns as the toughest team. Between the Steelers and the Ravens, Baltimore still earned significantly more votes.
Each team has different perspectives, though, and I'd like to know what Browns fans think: which AFC North team do you think poses the toughest challenge to Cleveland in 2013?
The Ravens took some big hits this offseason defensively by losing Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Paul Kruger, Darnell Ellerbe, and others. They did a pretty good job trying to patch their team with some veteran talent, though. The Steelers appeared to be on a downward spiral last year and have question marks all over the place on offense. The Bengals might be my pick for the toughest team in the division, but that would be the same Bengals team that Cleveland defeated a year ago -- in other words, I think the division is leveling out in terms of talent, with Cincinnati and Cleveland going up, Baltimore suffering a slight decline, and Pittsburgh heading down quicker than they'd like.
