Week 10 NFL Power Rankings: Browns Fall One Point In ESPN Rankings

It's been a tough couple weeks for the Cleveland Browns, who started out the season looking strong. They've lost their last two games and have all kinds of issues, from quarterback to running back. Peyton Hillis continues to have a hamstring injury and has already been ruled out for next week's game. Accordingly, they continue to fall in power rankings around the internet.

ESPN drops them a point in their Week 10 power rankings:

25. The Browns aren't making much progress in Year 2 of the Mike Holmgren regime. (Walker)    

Previously ranked at No. 24, the Browns got thoroughly beat down by the Texans. Walker's explanation is fitting, they're really not making a whole lot of progress at all in Holmgren's second year. The defense has looked better, most notably the secondary, but the offense has actually seriously regressed. It's like they entered the season with no real plan on offense, and now with all the issues with Peyton Hillis, they've nowhere to really go with things.
