For the second week in a row, Joel Thorman from SB Nation has the Cleveland Browns has the No. 32 team in their Week 5 NFL Power Rankings. I still believe there are worse teams than the Browns, including the Tennessee Titans and the Jacksonville Jaguars for sure. However, until the Browns pull out their first victory, I at least understand why they are currently an easy team to place at the bottom. It'd be really interested in seeing where the Browns would rank next week if they were to upset the Giants. Here's what Joel said about the Browns:
32. Cleveland Browns (LW: 32, 0-4): The Browns and Saints remain as the NFL's only winless teams.
Yep. And, here is how the rest of the AFC North fared in the rankings:
Baltimore: No. 3 (push from No. 3)
Pittsburgh: No. 13 (down from No. 11)
Cincinnati: No. 10 (up from No. 13)
Cleveland: No. 32 (push from No. 32)
I would stake money that says the Bengals are not the tenth best team in the league. They aren't even close to that. However, they continue to do a good job beating up on the teams they are supposed to beat, so for now I will deal with the ranking. Who knows, maybe they will prove me wrong later in the season. The Steelers may be at full strength defensively this week, so it'll be interesting to see how their defense looks.
