Here's a look at the Browns' top five team MVP candidates through 14 games.

1. RB Peyton Hillis — Hillis has rushed for a team-high 1,129 yards and 11 touchdowns on 252 carries. No other Browns player currently on the roster has attempted more than 20 rushes or gained more than 87 yards on the ground. Hillis also leads the Browns in receptions (59) and has racked up 469 yards receiving with two TDs.

2. NT Ahtyba Rubin — Rubin recorded a team-high 10 tackles in the Browns' 19-17 loss at Cincinnati Sunday (five solo). He's now tied for second on the team in tackles (74) and has racked up 19 in the past two weeks, a sign the 330-pound nose tackle is not wearing down. He merits Pro Bowl consideration.

3. TE Benjamin Watson — Watson caught all seven passes thrown to him Sunday for 92 yards, with four catches resulting in gains of 15 yards or more. In the past four weeks, Watson has been targeted 24 times, with 22 catches for 240 yards and a TD. Watson leads the Browns in receiving yards (674) and is second on the team in receptions (58).

4. CB Joe Haden — Haden notched seven tackles vs. Cincinnati, bringing his season total to 53. He leads the Browns with five interceptions and has defended 16 passes.

5. S T.J. Ward — With eight defensive tackles vs. the Bengals, Ward ran his team-high tackle total to 114. He had one tackle for loss and also defended a pass. On special teams, Ward recorded two more tackles (one solo, one assist) and leads the Browns with 18.

Honorable mention: S Abram Elam, OLB Scott Fujita, P Reggie Hodges, C Alex Mack, QB Colt McCoy, OLB Matt Roth, OLT Joe Thomas.
