2. Brandon Weeden, Cleveland Browns
Weeden improves every week. He nabs the second spot this here because he showed the full arsenal in the Browns' 17-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He's got a big arm and used it on a perfect third-and-13 conversion. He found his second read for a potential touchdown that was called back by penalty. On the next play, he showed touch on a toss Greg Little turned on for a highlight reel. Weeden gives his receivers chances to make plays; he's not afraid.
Weeden missed a few deep passes, but a beautiful bomb thrown to Josh Gordon was dropped. Weeden was hit on the play and continues to stand tall in the pocket. He even made a surprising scramble to pick up another third-and-long. The Browns have a nice mix of slants, screens, and vertical throws. Weeden hit three plays over 25 yards and there should have been four. He's probably played his best game of the season four weeks running and hits No. 2 on our countdown for the first time. A true honor.
