SB Nation Week 14 NFL Power Rankings: Browns Reach a New High

The Browns are going up.
The Browns are going up.

In SB Nation's Week 14 NFL Power Rankings, Joel Thorman ranked the Cleveland Browns at No. 25 overall, which for the second straight week bumps them up to a new high. The Browns have won two games in a row for the first time since early last season, and they have a chance to make it three in a row with a win over the Chiefs. Here's what Joel said about the Browns this week:

25. Cleveland Browns (LW: 28, 4-8): The Browns can end the season on a high note. They've won four of seven and their next two are winnable.

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

Baltimore: No. 6 (down from No. 4) Falling
Pittsburgh: No. 10 (push from No. 10)
Cincinnati: No. 12 (up from No. 13) Rising
Cleveland: No. 25 (up from No. 28) Rising

As the Browns' ranking increases, they will also pick later in the draft. Is that something fans are willing to accept in exchange for a strong finish to the season? The Steelers came up with a huge win this week to keep their playoff, and even division, hopes alive, as did the Bengals.
