Stud: Nick Chubb
What a game Nick Chubb had. Entering Week 4, there were some analytic sites that weren’t too high on the second-year running back. We looked at their claims and said that the real difference between his rookie season and this year was that No. 24 just hadn’t broken off a big run yet.
Once he did — and we knew it was coming due to how many he had in 2018 — things would be different. Well, now things are different.
Chubb was unstoppable on Sunday and found himself hitting paydirt three times while also racking up a season-high 165 yards on the ground. He was great throughout the game but did a whole lot of the damage on one run as he took it 88-yards to the house in the fourth quarter.
That was his third touchdown, with the first coming from 14 yards out and the second from two — both of those came in the third quarter when Cleveland pulled away. For good measure, the sophomore running back also had 18 yards receiving on three receptions for the Browns as well.
Still, the 88-yard run will be the one that sees all the highlight reels and rightfully so. It was the third-longest run in team history and now Chubb owns the record for two of those three.
Last year in a Week 10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons he ripped off a 92-yarder which is the most in Cleveland history ahead of Bobby Mitchell‘s 90-yarder from 1959.
