Week 17 NFL Power Rankings: ESPN Keeps Browns At No. 28

It's been a rough season for the Cleveland Browns. Though Seneca Wallace is now the quarterback with Colt McCoy out with a concussion, the team hasn't been able to get back to winning ways. Wallace has played well and given the offense a spark, but after losing to the Arizona Cardinals in overtime, they were soundly beaten by the division rival Baltimore Ravens. There's a lot of questions going forward, the least of which isn't whether or not McCoy will be the starter heading into Week 17, providing he's healthy.

ESPN keeps the Browns in place in their Week 17 NFL power rankings:

28. Mike Holmgren says things have changed in Cleveland. But the Browns are 9-22 under his leadership. (Walker)

That's definitely true: the Browns haven't looked all that much better under Holmgren. They show a spark here or there, but the team is unable to keep things together and win games with anything approaching consistency. As such, they'll be picking near the top of the 2012 NFL Draft.
