Cleveland Browns News: Nick Chubb, Jarvis Landry make Pro Bowl
Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry made the 2020 Pro Bowl despite the struggles that the Cleveland Browns have had throughout this season
This season has been hard to watch for Cleveland Browns fans. Their offense was supposed to be one of the best in the NFL but that hasn’t happened.
Instead, it’s been an inconsistent and frustrating unit. That is, outside of a couple of players.
Running back Nick Chubb is quietly having an amazing season as arguably the best running back in the game. Jarvis Landry has also raised his game and both players have been rewarded for their individual work.
Chubb and Landry were named to the Pro Bowl this season and Odell Beckham, Jr. was selected as one of four alternates.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

"“Nick Chubb’s breakout season is being rewarded with a trip to the 2020 Pro Bowl in Orlando. Chubb, the league’s leading rusher through 15 weeks, was named as a starter on Tuesday night.Wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who went over 1,000 receiving yards on Sunday in Arizona, was named to the team for the fifth consecutive time.”"
Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry have been two bright spots on an otherwise dreadful offense. OBJ is also getting some respect for his season but it still feels as though he could have done more — although that blame isn’t all on him.
In addition to Beckham, Joe Schobert, Joel Bitonio, and Denzel Ward were also named as alternates. With how many players skip the event, it wouldn’t be surprising to see most of those guys wind up making the team.

"“Pro Football Hall of Famers Dante Lavelli and Paul Warfield were named Monday as two of the 24 finalists at wide receiver. They’re in the running for 10 spots on the 100-man squad, which is being unveiled week by week on Fridays on NFL Network.”"
There was a day when the Browns were full of star players. It may be hard to believe now, but studs like Warfield and Lavelli often found their way to Cleveland during the team’s glory days.
Freddie Kitchens has officially lost the team
At this point, this one probably goes without saying. Still, Frank Teriaca dives into the issues with this Browns roster which proves Freddie Kitchens has lost the faith of his players.

"“No. Again, I just went and asked for the ball,’’ he said. “I felt like I hadn’t touched the ball since the first quarter, and we’re inside of 10 minutes in the fourth and I still hadn’t touched the ball. Well, that play I touched the ball. So you know.”"
Landry is not the first receiver to ask for the ball and he won’t be the last. The problem here is that it was caught by the cameras during a bad game.
