Playing on the road against an emotional crowd against the Oakland Raiders did not hurt the Cleveland Browns in this week's SB Nation Power Rankings. The Browns only dropped one spot to No. 22 according to SBNation's Joel Thorman, though he is still not high on them with a 2-3 record:

22. Cleveland Browns (2-3, LW: 21): They have to beat a team that's won a game this year for me to start taking them a little more seriously.

There is definitely reason for skepticism for the Browns. Their only victories have come over the winless Indianapolis Colts and the winless Miami Dolphins. Those teams have a combined 0-11 record, but at least the Colts have been competitive in several games.

Up next for Cleveland is a home game against the up and down Seattle Seahawks. Seattle enters with an identical 2-3 record, but they are coming off of a bye week and a surprising win over the New York Giants in New York. Seattle was at No. 26 in this week's rankings.
