Cleveland Browns: Browns power rankings
Preseason: 28 | Last Week: 31 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
Who said the Browns had given up on the season after trading running back Trent Richardson? Oh, that's right, I did. Well, the Browns proved me and other critics wrong by beating the Minnesota Vikings, a playoff team last year, on the road.
That moved the Browns up six spots in this week's rankings after being next-to-last a week ago. It was tied for the second-biggest jump in this week's Power Rankings. Only the New York Jets, who climbed 10 spots, made a bigger leap.
This is the Browns' highest ranking of the year and their best since they ended the 2012 season at No. 24. But the Browns are ranked above only one other one-win team, the Oakland Raiders (who are No. 30). The only other teams below Cleveland are winless ones.
As far as the AFC North goes, the Cincinnati Bengals jumped to No. 6, the Baltimore Ravens stayed at No. 11 and the Pittsburgh Steelers plummeted to No. 28.
