Week 10 NFL Power Rankings: CBS Sports Holds Browns At 24

It makes sense for the Cleveland Browns to be falling down power rankings lists, coming off two straight losses. But their most recent outing was one that wasn't as damning - losing to potentially the best team in the AFC, the Houston Texans. How far do you drop a team that has lost to, say, the Green Bay Packers? It really probably depends on the severity of the loss and the individual things that happened.

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco keeps the Browns in last week's spot:

24. They seem to be going in the wrong direction. Even the defense isn't playing well now.    

Given his reasoning, it probably would have made sense to drop them a point, but it's hard to argue with maintaining a position like 24 for this Browns team. The defense isn't playing very well, granted, but that was the Houston Texans, who are explosive even without wide receiver Andre Johnson. This Sunday they'll have a chance to improve their ranking with a game against the St. Louis Rams, however.
