Here are the Browns' players of the week on offense, defense and special teams for Week Six.

Offense: QB Colt McCoy

McCoy gets high marks for his first start. He completed 23-of-33 passes for 281 yards with a TD to TE Benjamin Watson. He also rushed for 22 yards on four carries. While McCoy threw a pair of picks, it's hard to grade him too harshly for this debut against this caliber of opponent. Some thought McCoy would be overmatched, but that was far from the case. This was a promising debut.

Defense: CB Joe Haden

We'll go with Haden, who had the Browns' lone takeaway, an interception he took back 62 yards to the Pittsburgh 35. The Browns capitalized on the turnover, with PK Phil Dawson hitting a 39-yard field goal to give Cleveland a 3-0 lead. Overall, though, this was not a good day for the defense, which surrendered 378 yards and four TDs to Pittsburgh.

Special teams: P Reggie Hodges

Hodges was exceptional against the Steelers. Four of his five punts pinned the Steelers inside their 10-yard line, and Pittsburgh didn't rack up any return yards against him. On the season, Hodges has a 39.9-yard net average on 34 punts.
