Kicker Phil Dawson made a career-best and Browns record 29 consecutive field goals and has converted 23 of his 24 attempts this season. Dawson has made all five of his field goals from at least 50 yards, including a three-for-three mark against the Baltimore Ravens on Sept. 27. He is an NFL-best 12 of 13 from at least 50 yards since the start of the 2011 season.

Linebacker D’Qwell Jackson was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week after making nine tackles, forcing one fumble, recovering another and defending one pass in a 20-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago. He leads the team with 90 total tackles and is second on the Browns with three quarterback sacks. Jackson has also returned an interception for a touchdown this year.

Wide receiver/two-time Pro Bowl special teamer Joshua Cribbs ranks in the NFL’s top ten with an average of 12.4 yards per punt return and 28.1 yards per kickoff return. Earlier this year, Cribbs passed Desmond Howard for sixth on the NFL’s all-time return yards list. His 9,707 kickoff return yards are the most for any player with one team in league history.

Five-time Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas has been a mainstay on the Browns’ offensive line since being selected with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. Thomas has played in 92 consecutive games and has not missed an offensive snap in his career. With Thomas at left tackle, the Browns have surrendered only 21 sacks this season.

With one more all-star game appearance, Thomas would join running back Leroy Kelly, Pro Football Hall of Fame guard Gene Hickerson and tackle Dick Schafrath in a third-place tie for the most Pro Bowl appearances in franchise history.

Along with Thomas, center Alex Mack has played every offensive snap this season. Mack has played in 60 straight games since joining the Browns in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Rubin has battled through a calf injury that cost him three games in the middle of the season, but still has 32 total tackles, 22 solo stops and two sacks for 13 lost yards. He has the most tackles of any NFL defensive lineman (197) since the start of the 2010 season. Since Rubin’s return from injury, the Browns have limited the Dallas Cowboys, Steelers and Oakland Raiders to a combined total of 203 rushing yards and have collected 10 turnovers and nine sacks.
