The AFC North arguably has two of the strongest, unmatched, rivalries ever – Baltimore Ravens – Pittsburgh Steelers, and of course, the Ohio rivalry, Bengals-Browns.
Browns fans are keeping their eye on Baker Mayfield, who is the man behind quarterback Tyrod Taylor, a player who will undoubtedly put his best effort forward to prove himself to Cleveland and everyone else for that matter.
And for Cincinnati, Bengals fans have to be hoping Joe Mixon and A.J. Green will give the Bengals’ offense the power it needs this season.
Are you a Ravens or Steelers fan, and want to know where you can catch Big Ben and Antonio Brown on the big screen, or Michael Crabtree, and dare I say it, see if Joe Flacco will step it up this season? (Sorry Ravens fans.) Well, keep reading to find out where AFC North fans gather in DC on Sundays!
