AFC North has dismal opening week, combined 0-4

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - Bengals coach Marvin Lewis watched video of Pittsburgh's season-opening disaster and felt a kinship.

"They are feeling a lot like we are," Lewis said.

The opening-game blues aren't confined to Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. The rest of the AFC North can commiserate. The defending Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens looked very little like a title team in their opening game. The down & out Cleveland Browns are down again under a new coach.

The division is a combined 0-4 after the season's opening week for only the second time in its history, according to STATS LLC. The other time? That was 2002, when the current division format was adopted.

It's quite a surprise for a division that has been the NFL's best over the past five years.
