As the only division in the NFL to have three teams make the postseason, it’s pretty obvious that the AFC North is the best division in football.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh agrees with that statement.
See. Told you.
“It’s not even close,” Harbs added.
As BaltimoreRavens.com’s Garrett Downing points out, six match ups against the best division in football might not be the end for the Ravens. The Bengals travel to Houston and the Steelers to Denver this weekend and both hosts have lost three straight games.
“That just says we got a tough division,” fullback Vonta Leach said in Downing’s article. “Our division is one that everybody has a tough time playing against.”
Yet somehow in August, everyone seems to think the NFC East has turned the corner and put the mediocrity of all four teams behind them.
