Power Rankings: No. 25 Cleveland Browns
By Pat McManamon
A weekly examination of the Browns' ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 28 | Last Week: 23 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
The slide continues, though it’s too gradual to call it a plummet. The Cleveland Browns' position at No. 25 in the ESPN.com Power Rankings is their lowest of the season.
The last four weeks, they have dropped from 18 to 19 to 23 to 25.
Given the way the last two weeks went, it’s surprising the Browns aren’t lower.
The team had a chance two weeks ago to get back in the middle of things in the AFC North. The response: eight turnovers and being outscored by 50 points the last seven quarters.
Bill Parcells always said a team is what its record is, that eventually it will find its level.
The Browns seem to be finding theirs. And the way they’ve played the past two weeks, it almost seems like a miracle that Rob Chudzinski could find four wins in the first nine games.
