Who’s better than who in the NFL? It’s all anybody really wants to know about the league each week. And after five weeks, the picture seems a bit clearer.

But there are still plenty of teams that could be early flashes, who may or may not be contenders. All the analysis, previews, breakdowns and smack talk boil down to a simple hierarchy: If any two given teams played, who’d win? That’s what power rankings are all about, and that’s how the 32 NFL teams are slotted here each week.

32. Cleveland Browns
Oh, the poor Browns. They’ve been giving better teams a run for their money—and for a brief, shining moment it looked like they might do the same to the New England Patriots. But the quarterback injury bug hit again, and again, and the Browns had to resort to their fifth quarterback in five games and they got blown out.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars
They got off the schneid against the Colts two weeks ago, but this team has way too much talent to be playing anywhere near this badly. If they didn’t get some stuff sorted out during the bye week, head coach Gus Bradley could be the first skipper shown the door.
