AFL 2023 Brownlow Predictor - Round 14

There were just six matches this weekend, but quantity didn't result in a lack of quality with several great performances.

For the 2023 season, the Edge of the Crowd writers keep tabs on the best performances in every AFL match to predict who will win the Brownlow medal; round Fourteen was no different.

Port Adelaide moved to the top of the ladder this weekend, while Geelong still sits outside the top eight after 14 rounds.
