A weekly examination of the Browns’ ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 28 | Last Week: 30 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
The Browns fell to 0-2 for the fifth time in six seasons and have scored one touchdown this season. And by the way, they may not have starting quarterback Brandon Weeden available because of a thumb injury. So dropping the Browns one spot to No. 31 shouldn't come as a surprise. The only team below the Browns is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have been outscored 47-11.
This is the 14th time Cleveland is ranked 30th or lower in the past 23 Power Rankings. In terms of regular-season rankings, this is the lowest for the Browns since Week 6 of last season, when they were No. 32 after going winless in their first five games.
