NFL power rankings, Week 15: Browns fall despite winning streak

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns have fallen in the Week 15 power rankings, despite another win on Sunday.

The Cleveland Browns have put together something of a winning streak, surprising to everybody except perhaps themselves. Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden and rookie running back Trent Richardson have played well enough to supplement what is, at times, a dominant defense. On Sunday, they put the Kansas City Chiefs down without much issue, winning, 30-7.

Joel Thorman of SB Nation released his Week 15 power rankings, and unfortunately, the Browns dropped a couple spots. A lot of teams ended up moving up, but it's still questionable placement.

27. Cleveland Browns (LW: 25, 5-8): What if I told you the Browns were one of the five most underrated teams this year? It's true.

That's down two spots from last week, when the Browns were at 25. It's worth noting that the Browns at 25 last week was a bit higher than other sites had them placed, so this is kind of an evening out for Thorman and SB Nation's main rankings.

Still, the Browns are one of those teams that epitomize "trap game." They're still technically in the playoff hunt, but it's next year that they'll be looking to deal some damage, all while rising up the weekly power rankings.
