Cleveland Browns: 2013 NFL Week 3 Power Rankings

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.

The Browns' schedule doesn't get any easier. Cleveland plays at the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday and returns home to face the Cincinnati Bengals the following week.

As far as the rest of the AFC North goes, the Bengals (No. 10) and the Baltimore Ravens (No. 11) remain in the top half of the league, while the Pittsburgh Steelers slipped to No. 25.
