NFL Power Rankings: Browns are on the move

A win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and going 3-3 in their last six games has helped the Browns move up the NFL power rankings.

After starting the season without a win in their first five games, the Cleveland Browns are starting to turn things around. They've gone 3-3 in their last six, including a 20-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Even their losses have been close recently, including falling in overtime to the Dallas Cowboys in Big D. With the team improving steadily, they are also rising through the NFL power rankings.

SB Nation's Joel Thorman puts the Browns in the 28th spot in his power rankings, citing good play as of late and a lack of a blowout since the first week of October. Meanwhile at ESPN, the Browns are shooting up the standings, moving from 30th to 27th in just one week.

CBS Sports has the Browns the lowest at 29th, but Pete Prisco has the most praise for the Browns and gives the fans some hope:

Browns fans have to be excited about how much improvement they are making. There is talent there to build on.

The Browns will try to keep the good mojo going then they travel to the Bay Area to take on the Oakland Raiders this weekend.
