AFC North gets a big shakeup with Ben Roethlisberger's season-ending injury

The AFC North got a wrench thrown in the perceived order of things during Week 2, where two teams dropped to 0-2 and the Pittsburgh Steelers lost Ben Roethlisberger to a season-ending injury. The standings so far: Baltimore Ravens 2-0 Cleveland Browns 1-1 Cincinnati Bengals 0-2 Pittsburgh Steelers 0-2 The news out of Pittsburgh is obviously the biggest item and has already fired up the conversation about whether Big Ben will ever play again.

Pittsburgh starting 0-2 wasn't overly surprising given games against New England and Seattle.
