Week five of the NFL Season is in the books and the AFC North now has a lone leader, the Baltimore Ravens. All four AFC North teams were in action this week against non-division opponents. Let's start with the division leading Baltimore Ravens as they traveled to Kansas City to take on the turnover crazy Chiefs. Although the Ravens were a much better team on paper, Arrowhead Stadium caused Baltimore's no-huddle offense fits and the Ravens had to convert a late fourth quarter third down in order to seal the 9-6 victory. Baltimore's defense forced four Kansas City turnovers and scored all nine of its points off of those turnovers. Joe Flacco had his weakest performance of the season completing just 13 of 27 pass attempts for 187 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. Ray Rice ran the ball well garnering 102 yards on the ground. Rookie kicker Justin Tucker went three for three on field goal attempts to account for all of Baltimore's points. After their bye week, the Pittsburgh Steelers were back in action against their in-state foe the Philadelphia Eagles. The Steelers prevailed 16-14 with their defense forcing two Michael Vick fumbles in the victory. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 207 yards, while Rashard Mendenhall rushed for 81 yards and Pittsburgh's lone touchdown. The victory improved the Steelers record to 2-2 on the season. The Cincinnati Bengals hosted the Miami Dolphins in a game most people felt Cincinnati would take fairly easily, but that's why they play the game. Miami intercepted Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton's pass with 1:22 left in the fourth quarter to seal their 17-13 victory Sunday afternoon. Dalton threw for 234 yards with one touchdown and two costly interceptions, while wide receiver AJ Green continued his fantastic season reeling in 9 catches for 65 yards and a touchdown. The loss dropped the Bengals to 3-2 on the season and out of their first place tie with Baltimore. The lowly Cleveland Browns got out to an early 14-0 lead over the hosting New York Giants, but Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw had a different outcome in mind. Bradshaw proceeded to literally rush right over top of the Browns defense has he exploded for 200 rushing yards and a touchdown. Cleveland rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden had a decent day throwing for 291 yards with two touchdowns but also had two interceptions. The Browns dropped to 0-5 on the season and continue to find ways to lose football games. All four AFC North teams will be in action on Week six: Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2) at Tennessee Titans (1-4) on Thursday Night at 8:30pm EST Cleveland Browns (0-5) vs Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) on Sunday at 1pm EST Baltimore Ravens (4-1) vs Dallas Cowboys (2-2) on Sunday at 1pm EST   It should be another exciting week of AFC North football as the Ravens look to pad their lead in the division. Here is how the division standings look as of now:   Team Wins Loses GB Baltimore Ravens 4 1 - Cincinnati Bengals 3 2 1 Pittsburgh Steelers 2 2 1.5 Cleveland Browns 0 5 4   Also….
