2012 NFL Power Rankings, Week 11: Browns hold spot near bottom of NFL

Jason Miller

NFL writers seem to agree, Cleveland among worst teams in the NFL.

The Cleveland Browns went into their bye week last week after going 2-2 in their past four games. But with a 2-7 record on the season, the Browns need to win a few more games to impress NFL observers and show they are moving in a positive direction.

With rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden guiding the offense, the Browns are averaging 312 yards per game which ranks 28th in the NFL. But only Kansas City and Jacksonville have fewer wins than the Browns and that bottom line statistic is what has the Browns ranked near the bottom of the NFL in most power rankings compiled by NFL writers.

The Browns come in at No.30 according to SB Nation's latest NFL power rankings, which express hope that the Browns can pick up a couple of wins to close the season with the Raiders and Chiefs on the schedule. ESPN's power rankings also lost Cleveland at No. 30, noting that Weeden hasn't thrown a touchdown pass in the past nine quarters of play.

Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com also keeps the Browns at No. 30 in his power rankings. According to Prisco, the future of the Browns is on the field, but it is hard to look forward without knowing the status of the current coaching staff.
