Here are my predictions for how the AFC will finish this year and who we will see in the postseason.
Saturday night, the Ravens will be taking part in what will be a “dress rehearsal” atmosphere for the veterans as they welcome the Redskins down the beltway to Baltimore.
On the AFC North side, Andy Dalton and the Bengals will probably fall behind with the Steelers or the Ravens being most likely to win the division. Both the Ravens and the Steelers finished 8-8 last year and are ready to hit the play offs again, and win. The Steelers have potentially filled the spot of Emmanuel Sanders and his name goes by Markus Wheaton. Wide Receiver Lance Moore scored ten touchdowns last year at the University of Toledo. Wilson says that Lance is “smart and crafty.” Moore is probably one a good pick up for the Steelers, something that they need.

Baltimore Ravens Head Coach, John Harbaugh, is once again suggesting that “Redskins fans have their AFC team be the Ravens.”

One of the biggest roster questions other than cornerback for the Ravens is that of Right Tackle. Ricky Wagner has been getting the majority of first-team reps at the position, but nothing is set in stone just yet.
“[Harbaugh] said Ricky’s been solid, and solid comes before good, which comes before great. So Wagner isn’t good or great just yet, but he’s looking like he’ll win the job,” said Coleman.
“He’s probably in the top four players you cannot afford to lose. It just shows how valuable he is, because you saw how Dominique franks faired when replacing him,” said Wilson.
“The thing about the preseason is you just sort of want to survive and advance to games that matter,” Wilson added.
Although depth and injury problems have been a factor in the preseason for Baltimore, there have been a number of bright spots in the first two games.

I liked what I saw from the starting group on offense.
