As a division, the AFC North ranks fifth in the ESPN Power Rankings. Here's how our voters (I don't have a vote) ranked the AFC North teams in Week 3:

RAVENS

Power ranking: 7

Record: 1-1

Comment: Ravens fell three spots, but it easily could have been more after their showing at the Titans, a team that isn't expected to go to the playoffs.

STEELERS

Power ranking: 9

Record: 1-1

Comment: No love for the Steelers, who fell one spot despite shutting out the Seahawks. The Falcons and Texans both moved into the top 10, which pushed Pittsburgh down.

BENGALS

Power ranking: 28

Record: 1-1

Comment: The Bengals were impressive even in defeat at Denver, which clearly shows in the power rankings. Cincinnati, which had been ranked last in the preseason and in Week 1, moved up two spots.

BROWNS

Power ranking: 29

Record: 1-1

Comment: The Browns made the biggest leap of any AFC North team, climbing three spots after beating the Colts.
