SB Nation Week 8 NFL Power Rankings: Browns Remain at No. 30

After losing to the Colts this past Sunday, the Browns are still ranked No. 30 overall.

In SB Nation's Week 8 NFL Power Rankings, Joel Thorman kept the Cleveland Browns as the No. 30 ranked team, despite their loss to the Indianapolis Colts. I did actually get my wish that I've had all season, though, and that is the fact that the Jacksonville Jaguars are finally the worst-ranked team in football. I guess I can finally sleep at night. It only took injuries to Blaine Gabbert and Maurice Jones-Drew, but it finally happened. Here's what Joel said about the Browns this week:

30. Cleveland Browns (LW: 30, 1-6): Is the Jimmy Haslam era really going to be the start of something new in Cleveland? It really might be, if he can find a coach who doesn't bury his head in the sand on fourth-and-one.

Here is how the rest of the AFC North fared in the rankings:

Baltimore: No. 8 (down from No. 2) Falling
Pittsburgh: No. 11 (up from No. 16) Rising
Cincinnati: No. 18 (down from No. 17) Falling
Cleveland: No. 30 (push from No. 30)

The Ravens were taken down a peg in the rankings after being blown out by the Houston Texans. No. 8 overall is where they should have been last week, and then they should've fallen even further this week. Baby steps, I suppose. The Steelers should not have warranted a five-spot increase in rankings for beating the lowly Bengals, and the Bengals should have dropped more than one spot for their loss. Am I the only person who thinks our division is tumbling down?
