Here are the Browns' players of the week on offense, defense and special teams for Week 14.
Offense: RB Peyton Hillis
On a disappointing day for the offense, Hillis gets the nod. He rushed for 108 yards on 21 carries in the 13-6 loss at Buffalo. However, he fumbled three times, losing one. Hillis has been the Browns' best offensive player this season by a wide margin, but he's fumbled eight times, with five recovered by the opposition.
Defense: S T.J. Ward
Ward notched a team-high 12 tackles for Cleveland and leads the team in tackles on the season. He's teamed with Abram Elam to give the Browns a playmaking tandem at safety. Moreoever, Ward has been an important contributor on special teams.
Special teams: PK Phil Dawson
The Browns' steady veteran kicker accounted for all of Cleveland's scoring in the 13-6 loss at Buffalo Sunday, connecting on both field-goal attempts. The last original "new" Brown, Dawson is having another fine season. He's hit 20-of-25 field goals this season, and the Browns have covered his kickoffs exceptionally well, too.
