NFL Power Rankings: Browns Tank Back Toward the Bottom in Week 10

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Here is a summary of how the Cleveland Browns are viewed across mainstream media outlets heading into Week 10 Power Rankings of the NFL season.

CBS Sports - No. 30 (Down 1 from Last Week)

Just play Johnny Manziel. The season is over, so why not find out what he can do?

FOX Sports - No. 31 (Down 7 from Last Week)

Although Josh McCown gives the Browns the best chance to win now, it might be time to move on with Johnny Manziel to see what they've got. View season trend. - No. 26 (Down 2 from Last Week)

Another loss, another frustrating week for Browns fans. While Johnny Manziel showed signs of development in the first half last Thursday night, the second-half regression exemplified typical Brownies football. (Coming at you again since 1999!) Cleveland went three-and-out on its first four drives after the break. It wasn't all Manziel's fault, as two balls went off guys' helmets (how does that happen? prime-time glare?) and another off a knee (how does a guy let a ball carom off his knee before getting his hands on it?). So I guess what we're saying is that the Browns at least find entertaining ways to drop footballs.

Yahoo Sports - No. 28 (Down 2 from Last Week)

The Cleveland Plain-Dealer ran a poll, after Bernie Kosar said he wanted to take control of the Browns, asking what role Kosar should have, if any. As of Monday evening, about 73 percent were in favor of Kosar being the general manager or president of football operations. Desperation is thick in Cleveland.

ESPN - No. 28 (Down 5 from Last Week)

The Browns are 0-6 against teams currently at or above .500 this season. They travel to Pittsburgh, a place where they haven't won since 2003, to take on the 5-4 Steelers on Sunday. - No. 30 (Down 6 from Last Week)

The Browns running back woes continue. Their top two rushers on a yards per carry basis this year are quarterbacks Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel.

Listed below is a summary table of where teams in the AFC North are ranked this week.
