Here are the Browns' players of the week on offense, defense and special teams for Week 13.
Offense: TE Benjamin Watson
Time and again, Watson got open against the Dolphins. QB Jake Delhomme threw to him 11 times, and Watson hauled in 10 catches for 100 yards, including the Browns' lone TD, in Cleveland's 13-10 win. Watson is the first Browns player to catch 10 passes in a game since Kellen Winslow in 2008.
Defense: CB Joe Haden
Haden's first NFL season gets better and better. The rookie from Florida, who appears to have overtaken Eric Wright at left cornerback, intercepted a pass for a fourth consecutive game. He was also credited with four passes defensed. Haden looks like he'll be a fixture in the lineup for years to come.
Special teams: NT Shaun Rogers
Rogers is exceptional at blocking placekicks. He blocked PK Dan Carpenter's 41-yard FG attempt in the first quarter, the 14th such time he's deflected a field goal and prevented it from going through the uprights. (Rogers has also blocked three point-after attempts.) Rogers made an impact on defense, as well, recording three tackles and a sack.
