NFL Power Rankings Week Three: Browns Ranked 25th in NFL.com Poll

NFL.com analyst Elliott Harrison has compiled his top 32 teams in the NFL, and the Cleveland Browns come in ranked 25th after their victory against Indianapolis, but Harrison also factors in their loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Cleveland is ranked one spot behind Cincinnati (24th) and a few spots above the Colts (30th), and they will take on Harrison’s 28th best team—the Miami Dolphins—in week three. Here’s what Harrison had to say about ranking the Browns 25th:

Cleveland probably deserves to be a shade higher, but they lost to Cincinnati, who, in turn, lost to Denver. Thus you have the exact science behind Denver at 23, Cincinnati at 24, and Cleveland at 25. The Browns face the Dolphins at home next week, a rematch of a close contest from last season. Will Colt McCoy be able to take advantage of the Dolphins’ secondary, which has struggled mightily?

Look for the Browns to attack the Dolphins through the air early to try and establish an early lead, then utilize Peyton Hillis and the ground game to close things out.
