Cleveland’s second-year back almost won the rushing title in 2019, if it wasn’t for Derrick Henry going beast mode and rushing for 211 yards in his week 17 matchup against the Texans — or maybe if former coach Freddie Kitchens would have stuck to the run more often when it was working.
Chubb ran for a whopping 1,494 yards, averaging five yards per carry, scoring 8 rushing touchdowns and also totaled 36 catches for 278 yards, making the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career.
When comparing Chubb to the Browns all-time single-season rushing yard leaders, he ranks fourth, behind Jim Brown who ranks third, second, and first. Jim Brown also ranks fifth, sixth, and seventh, but if you’re reading this you probably know how ridiculously good Jim Brown was in his prime.
With 2019 only being his second season in the NFL, I’m more than confident that in 10 years when we sit down to evaluate the best Browns players of the 2020s, Nick Chubb is going to be on that list pretty high up.
