Mario Mergola ranks every team in the NFL with the Detroit Lions proving they are an elite NFC team.

11. Cleveland Browns (LW: 16)

There is no denying or downplaying it any longer — the Cleveland Browns are good. People find it difficult to buy into a team that appears to not have a bevy of obvious talent — they entered the preseason with a ‘quarterback controversy,’ which is typically a sign for disaster — but the Browns play a style of football that transcends perceived talent: smart. Gutsy wins? They run the football. Need to pass? Quick hits to playmakers. When Cleveland was winning games by the narrowest of margins early in the season, it looked like a negative. Now, it’s clear that the Browns’ close wins are more indicative of making the right plays when they matter most.
