2022 AFC North NFL Power Rankings

Let the powers be ranked!

#4

cleveland browns (8-9)

(-1) The Browns remain a good team with loads of uncertainty. Watson and Baker are both up in the air. They lost Clowney but picked up Winfrey in the draft and addressed their pass defense with Emerson. We're moving the Browns down one spot due to the chaos surrounding Watson. and Mayfield

- Their best unit was their rushing defense which ranked 1st in Y/A and 4th in yards allowed. 

- Their worst unit was their passing attack which ranked 22nd in Y/A and 27th in yards. 

#3

Pittsburgh Steelers (9-7)

(+1) The Steelers were powered by Big Ben's final hurrah last season, so will take a year to re-set while the 4 QBs battle it out and learn the offense. Free agency was meh, but the draft picks show real promise.
