Week 8 NFL Power Rankings: Browns Actually Move Up In FOX Sports Rankings

Finally, we've got some positive movement for the Cleveland Browns in the latest NFL power rankings. After they were held by ESPN and then dropped a spot by CBS Sports, we've found a power ranking that has decided they deserve an increase, moving the Browns up two spots.

FOX Sports is the one to do it:

Seattle and Cleveland could play each other 10 times, and the score would probably be the same. At least Cleveland is trying to develop a QB. Having said that, it is hard to watch him throw the ball 35 times for only 178 yards.

Well said ... the game was both impressive and sorely disappointing (not to mention essentially un-watchable from a fan's standpoint). The defense played at a very high level against a struggling Seahawks offense, but the offense didn't get the ball into the endzone once while holding possession for over 40 minutes. There's definitely something wrong with that, but an increase is still probably warranted.
