NFL Schedule 2012: Ravens, Steelers Face Tough Tests

Tough tests surround the powerhouse teams in the AFC North in Week 2, as both the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers face tough tasks on Sunday.

Baltimore heads to Philadelphia to take on Michael Vick and the Eagles, who narrowly defeated the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. Still, the Eagles are a very talented team, and should pose to be a tough test for Joe Flacco and the Ravens -- especially on the road.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh plays host to the New York Jets, in a rematch of the 2010 AFC Championship game. Though the Jets looked awful through much of the preseason, they manhandled the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, winning 48-28.

The Browns will head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. Cincinnati is coming off of an embarrassing 44-13 loss, and will be looking to avoid an 0-2 start in the division.

Brandon Weeden will certainly need to play better on Sunday if the Browns want to avoid an 0-2 start -- and send Cincinnati to an 0-2 start of their own.

Still, Week 2 presents an opportunity for Cleveland to pick up a game on at least one AFC North team.
