Cleveland Browns: 2013 Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#30)

Last week: 30

The Browns’ offensive line was supposed to be one of the better offensive lines in the NFL, but the right side has gotten completely blown up through the first 2 games. Right guard Oneil Cousins has been as bad as a player can possibly be in 2 starts as an injury fill in, while right tackle Mitchell Schwartz, coming off a very strong rookie year, has already given up as many sacks in 2 games as he did all last season. The good news is that Shawn Lauvao is expected to return from injury this week. Lauvao isn’t very good and would have been the weak link on this line regardless, but he’ll be miles better than Cousins. Hopefully his return can spur a turnaround for Schwartz. The Browns also add Josh Gordon back from suspension, who gives them a much needed weapon on the outside if he can come back and play at the level he’s capable of. Both of those returns are just in time for a winnable game at 0-2 Minnesota.
