Week 11 NFL Power Rankings: ESPN Move Browns Towards Bottom Of NFL

We already looked at the SB Nation NFL Power Rankings for Week 11.  Now we take a peak at ESPN's rankings which have the Browns dropping closer and closer to Indianapolis Colts country.

The Browns dropped three places - from No. 25 to No. 28 - after their 13-12 loss to the Rams.  Perhaps even more of an indictment against the Browns is the comment left by AFC East blogger James Walker:

"It looks as though the game is moving way too fast for rookie coach Pat Shurmur."

While painful, it isn't necessarily inaccurate.  Starting all the way back in Week 1, when a complete mental breakdown by the Browns defense cost them a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Browns have appeared to be ill-prepared, especially in key moments - late in the first half and at the end of the game.

Couple in the fact that the Browns are the only team in the NFL not to have scored a touchdown in the 1st and 3rd quarter and you cans see why Shurmur is getting so much criticism.

The rest of the AFC North sees the Pittsburgh Steelers at No. 4, the Baltimore Ravens at No. 6 and the Bengals at No. 11.

Only the Miami Dolphins, St. Louis Rams, Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colt are behind the Browns on ESPN's list.
