Good news for Browns in latest NFL power rankings despite loss to Seahawks

Week 9 of the NFL season did not go the way that the Cleveland Browns had planned but they’re still being respected.

Good news for Browns in latest NFL power rankings despite loss to Seahawks
 Seahawks, 24-20, on a game-winning touchdown in the final minute. The Browns had the Seahawks on the ropes with P.J. Walker leading the offense.

Despite the loss, Cleveland remains at No. 13 in the latest NFL power rankings. There was not a lot of stock put into the tough road loss.

The Browns don’t have a ton of explosive offenses left on their schedule, which is why they may ultimately pass up the opportunity to improve at the quarterback position. But their margin for error is so incredibly small, and in games like this one (and the game last week against the Colts), it shows.

Cleveland should realistically be 3–4 and is two horrific officiating calls away from being in the kind of public relations hell from which there is no returning.” – Conor Orr, Sports Illustrated

Next up for the Browns will be a date with the Arizona Cardinals at home. Week 9 will present the Browns an opportunity to get right at home, perhaps with Walker at quarterback for at least one more week. The Cardinals come in at just 1-7 on the season.

Bears acquire star player in trade with Commanders

The Chicago Bears are almost certainly not going to make a postseason run this year, but that does not mean they are holding a fire sale at the trade deadline.

On Tuesday, the Bears acquired Montez Sweat in a trade with the Washington Commanders, according to multiple reports. Washington will receive a 2024 second-round pick in the deal.

Washington was said to be shopping Sweat and one other star defensive player prior to Tuesday’s deadline. Sweat, a first-round pick in 2019, has 32 tackles, 6.5 sacks and two forced fumbles through eight games this season.

He is on pace for career highs almost across the board. The former Mississippi State star had eight sacks last year and averaged 7.25 across his first four NFL seasons.

The Bears are 2-6 and expected to rebuild, but they view the 27-year-old Sweat as part of that plan. Sweat is in the final year of his rookie contract, so Chicago will likely use some of its projected $100 million plus in salary cap space for 2024 to sign Sweat to an extension.

Eight games into the regular season, it’s become abundantly clear that the Kansas City Chiefs have a wide receiver problem.

With Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline looming, former Dallas Cowboys star Dez Bryant is adamant the Chiefs address that issue by striking a trade with the Tennessee Titans for five-time Pro Bowler DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins, 31, turned back the clock this past Sunday with a vintage performance against the Atlanta Falcons.
