Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Browns in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
The Athletic -- Rank: 12
Jedrick Wills (10th overall) has started all 13 games at left tackle and played at a high level, as has the entire Browns' offensive line. Cleveland lost to the Ravens in dramatic fashion, but the Browns' offense is playing better than it has all year. Cleveland has totaled 83 points in its last two games.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 11
The defense fell apart against the Ravens. That can't happen in the playoffs. It's looking like it's a wild-card road for them.
USA Today -- Rank: 11
Bitter loss to Ravens on Monday night, but silver lining is a two-game swing through New Jersey swamps for a pair of likely victories.
ESPN -- Rank: 11
The Browns' offense has been spearheaded by arguably the top rushing attack in the league, powered by the running back duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt and one of the NFL's most improved offensive lines. But as FPI underscores, the defense has had issues outside of pass-rusher Myles Garrett, especially in the secondary, where injuries and inconsistent play have plagued Cleveland all season. -- Jake Trotter
NFL.com -- Rank: 9
The Browns have nothing to be ashamed of after coming up agonizingly short in one of the greatest prime-time games in NFL history. Led by an electric Baker Mayfield, Cleveland relentlessly attacked -- and eventually broke -- a Baltimore defense that had no answers. Unfortunately for the Browns, their own defense was flummoxed by reigning MVP Lamar Jackson, who set an MNF QB rushing record and made a series of monster throws upon returning from the locker room after experiencing cramps. The loss likely ends any quiet thoughts Kevin Stefanski's team had about catching the scuffling Steelers in the AFC North, but the Browns profile as an extremely difficult opponent come playoff time.
