NFL Power Rankings Final: ESPN Keeps Browns In Bottom Five

The Cleveland Browns were unable to win something of a grudge match against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday to close out their season. They were already eliminated from playoff contention and didn't have a whole lot to fight for, but this being the AFC North, the Browns wanted to get the upset. They weren't able to, which is ending up good for their draft stock, but they're not moving at all in the season-ending NFL power rankings:

ESPN keeps them right in the same spot in their weekly power rankings:

There's now only four teams below them on the rankings: the Buccaneers, Vikings, Rams and Colts. A win over the Steelers would have put them in slightly better company to a certain degree. The weekly rankings are the least of their worries though, and while the fans enjoy them throughout, when you're low, it's probably be best to be at the bottom, at least when the NFL draft is concerned.
