Here's whose stock is rising and falling after Cleveland's 14-10 win vs. Jacksonville on Sunday:
RB Chris Ogbonnaya — He rushed for a career-high 115 yards on Sunday — the best by a Browns runner this season. Ogbonnaya now leads Cleveland in rushing with 285 yards on 67 carries. Frankly, he has been the Browns' best back this season, and he has shown nice improvement in the past two games.
QB Colt McCoy's accuracy — He' ha completed better 70 percent of his throws in back-to-back games and at least 63.6 percent of his passes in the last four games. McCoy was 17-of-24 for 199 yards vs. Jacksonville (70.8 percent).
WR Jordan Norwood — Sparked the offense with a 51-yard reception in the second quarter. The Browns responded with the game-tying TD. Norwood has 11 receptions for 128 yards in 14 targets this season.
DT Phil Taylor — It was another productive game for the Browns' first-round pick, who racked up nine tackles. One negative: he jumped offside on the Jaguars' final drive, giving Jacksonville a first down.
SS Usama Young — Notched a team-high 10 tackles starting in place of SS T.J. Ward, who was inactive with a foot injury.
RBs Montario Hardesty and Peyton Hillis — Ogbonnaya's Week 11 performance was the best by a Browns back this season. He joined the team in late October.
PK Phil Dawson — Pushed a 38-yard field goal wide right (though Dawson thought otherwise) late in the fourth quarter. Dawson has had a fine season, but this was nearly a very costly miss for his club.
TE Evan Moore — For the second week in a row, he was not targeted in the passing game.
