Here are the Browns' players of the week on offense, defense and special teams for Week 15.
Offense: QB Colt McCoy
McCoy played very well in his return to the lineup after missing three games with a high ankle sprain, completing 19-of-25 passes for 243 yards with a career-high two TDs and no interceptions in Cleveland's 19-17 loss. The rookie's passer rating of 132.6 was a career high. There is no QB controversy in Cleveland — McCoy, named the starter for the rest of the season in the week leading up to Sunday's game, has been the Browns' best player at the position.
Defense: NT Ahtyba Rubin
Rubin notched a team-high 10 tackles at Cincinnati. The 6-2, 330-pound Rubin has 74 tackles in 14 starts this season and has been one of the Browns' most consistent players. Rubin leads Browns defensive linemen in tackles and is tied for second on the team.
Special teams: P Reggie Hodges
Hodges had two punts downed inside the Bengals' 10-yard line, raising his season total to 15. He has had 19 punts downed inside the opposition's 20-yard-line since Week Six.
