Here's a look at the Browns' top five team MVP candidates through seven games.

1. RB Peyton Hillis — Hillis leads the Browns in rushing, racking up 460 yards and five touchdowns on 104 carries and has also caught 27 passes for 193 yards and a touchdown. He rushed for 69 yards and a TD on 16 carries in the Browns' 30-10 victory at New Orleans.

2. OLB Scott Fujita — Fujita was stellar in the Browns' victory Sunday, notching 11 tackles, intercepting a pass at the Cleveland three-yard line and recording a quarterback sack. Also, the former Saints linebacker played a key role in the Browns' preparation for the New Orleans offense. Fujita, who has had a very good first season with the Browns, has racked up 44 tackles, 3½ sacks and two forced fumbles.

3. WR-RS Joshua Cribbs — Cribbs helped stake Cleveland to a 10-0 lead on Sunday with two big plays. First, he executed a throw-back, crossfield lateral to CB Eric Wright on a punt return, and Wright sprinted down the sideline for 62 yards, setting up a field goal. Then, on the Browns' next offensive possession, Cribbs drew a 38-yard pass interference penalty on Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins, putting Cleveland at the New Orleans four-yard line. Hillis scored a touchdown on the very next play. Cribbs returned three punts for 40 yards (13.3 yards per return) and three kickoffs for 68 yards (22.7 avg.).

4. S T.J. Ward — The rookie from Oregon notched six tackles and defended two passes at New Orleans. He leads the Browns with 60 tackles.

3. TE Benjamin Watson — With the Browns calling just 18 pass plays in Week Seven, Watson had just one catch for 18 yards. He was targeted twice. Watson contines to lead the Browns in receptions (30), receiving yards (336) and touchdowns (two).
