It's debatable whether Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis will make it to his first Pro Bowl this season. But what isn't debatable is that Hillis is running away with the High Energy Player of the Week honors in the AFC North.

Hillis is in a class by himself as the division's only multi-time winner. The bruising running back was chosen for the third time after rushing for 131 yards and three touchdowns in a win over the Carolina Panthers. His 11 rushing touchdowns this season makes him just the third player in Browns history to accomplish that feat.

Cleveland's acquisition of Hillis from the Denver Broncos for backup quarterback Brady Quinn is the most lopsided trade of the 2010 season. The Browns only have four wins but would be nowhere without Hillis, who leads the team in rushing (905 yards) and receptions (46).

If Hillis can keep up this pace in December, he might be Hawaii bound.
