NFL 5 43 NFL's most improved 21661127 Clay Matthews Clay+Matthews NFL The Packers linebacker ranks among the midseason favorites for Defensive Player of the Year. NFL commentator Joe Theismann told USA Today: "Clay Matthews single-handedly makes four plays a game that change the outcome." One measure of how Matthews has stepped it up: He had 10 sacks in his rookie season in 2009; through seven games this year, he already has 9 1/2.

NFL 5 43 NFL's most improved 21670029 Ryan Fitzpatrick Ryan+Fitzpatrick NFL Yes, that’s still a zero in the win column for the Bills, but you can’t fault their Ivy League QB, a six-year veteran. In five games as the starter, Fitzpatrick has 12 touchdowns and five interceptions and a passer rating of 91.1, about 20 points higher than 2009, when he started eight games for Buffalo.

NFL 5 43 NFL's most improved 21670035 Jason Babin Jason+Babin NFL The former first-round pick of the Texans has broken out this year for the Titans at age 30. The defensive end, with his fifth team, has been providing plenty of heat on opposing QBs. Babin’s seven sacks are more than he had in the past four seasons combined.

NFL 5 43 NFL's most improved 21611934 Brandon Lloyd Brandon+Lloyd NFL In his eighth season, with his fourth team, the Broncos’ Lloyd is putting up receiving numbers like never before. His 42 catches are six shy of his career-high for a season, from 2005 with the 49ers. Lloyd already has set a career-best in total yards (878) and is averaging almost 21 yards a catch.

NFL 5 43 NFL's most improved 21611933 Josh Scobee Josh+Scobee NFL

You can’t be any better than perfect, and that’s what the Jaguars kicker has been this season – 13 for 13 on field goals. Scobee hit only 18 of 28 last season. His longest of 2010, a 59-yarder, beat the Colts on the last play, and Scobee made five in a win over Buffalo.

NFL 5 43 NFL's most improved 21611932 Ahmad Bradshaw Ahmad+Bradshaw NFL Bradshaw wasn’t supposed to be the Giants’ No. 1 running back heading into the season, but he outperformed Brandon Jacobs to grab hold of the role. Bradshaw is getting nearly 20 carries a game and should surpass 2009’s rushing total on Sunday. He has topped 100 yards in three of his past four games.

NFL 5 43 NFL's most improved 21611929 Josh Freeman Josh+Freeman NFL The Buccaneers are among the NFL’s biggest surprises, and their young QB is a large part of that. As a rookie last season, Freeman finished with a 59.8 passer rating and threw 10 touchdowns with 18 interceptions. In 2010, those numbers read: 87.1, 8 and 3.

NFL 5 43 NFL's most improved 21670030 LeSean McCoy LeSean+McCoy NFL In his second season, the Eagles running back has become a weapon in the Brian Westbrook mold. McCoy, who has played through a broken rib, has become a bigger target in the passing game -- his 38 receptions and 293 yards nearly match 2009’s totals. Against the Redskins, McCoy had a Westbrook-like 64 yards rushing and 110 yards receiving on 12 catches.
