AFC North Standings: Browns Alone In Last Place At 0-2

The Cleveland Browns were unable to hold off the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, losing by a score of 34-27 and dropping their record to 0-2.

Now one of only six winless teams in the NFL, the Browns find themselves in last place in the AFC North. The Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals are all 1-1.

The Ravens defeated the Bengals in Week 1, but fell to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, 24-23. Eagles quarterback Michael Vick scrambled into the endzone with under two minutes remaining to steal the game from Baltimore. Joe Flacco was 22-of-42 for 232 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to Peyton Manning and the Broncos in Week 1, but they found their way into the win column Sunday against the New York Jets, 27-10. Ben Roethlisberger was 24-of-31 for 275 yards and two touchdowns, and the Pittsburgh defense held Mark Sanchez and the Jets to only 129 passing yards.

In NFL history, only 12% of 0-2 teams have been able to qualify for the playoffs. The Browns look to move out of last place and into the win column next week against the Buffalo Bills in Cleveland.
