NFL power rankings, Week 13: Browns win, still at No. 28

Matt Sullivan

The Cleveland Browns won in Week 12, but that doesn't mean they're going to skyrocket up the Week 13 NFL power rankings.

The Cleveland Browns have quietly picked up a few wins, and sit at 3-8 on the season. On Sunday, they bested the rival Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 20-14, though the best they can do for the season is finish with an 8-8 record. Such a finish is unlikely, and the team is likely just hoping that the rookies will continue to play well, namely running back Trent Richardson.

Joel Thorman of SB Nation released his Week 13 NFL power rankings on Tuesday, and he has the Browns up at No. 28, one spot up from last week.

28. Cleveland Browns (LW: 29, 3-8): The Browns have won three of five. They haven't been blown out since the first week of October. Progress?

Though somewhat tongue-in-cheek, "progress" is definitely the right word. The offense has a lot of young talent that could go either way, but at this point, they seem to be going in the right direction. The No. 28 rankings is up one spot from last week.

The teams below the Browns are the Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, and the worst of them all, the Kansas City Chiefs. Teams immediately above the Browns include the Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis Rams and the New York Jets.
