Here are 3 goals for Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb

Last season, the Cleveland Browns passing game had its share of problems, and while then-head coach Freddie Kitchens didn’t help, Baker Mayfield wasn’t sharp. The offensive line play at the tackle spots, in particular, didn’t aid Mayfield, either, but it is still evident that 2020 is a “pivotal year” for Mayfield, as Pro Football Focus’ Steve Palazzolo stressed in a recent piece.

Mayfield threw the second-most interceptions in the league last season with 21, and only Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills had a lower completion percentage among qualifying quarterbacks.

Albeit what was much more of a positive from 2019 for the Browns was obviously the play of Nick Chubb. Chubb was nothing short of outstanding for Cleveland, even with often spotty tackle play, and inconsistency at right guard.

Chubb finished the season with 1,494 yards rushing, which trailed only the Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry, but to some extent, Chubb could’ve maybe finished first in that category. Chubb was second just behind Henry in rushing yards after contact with 882 yards of that regard, too, and Chubb was also tied for the league lead in missed tackles forced with the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Jones. That was with 32 missed tackles forced, for reference.

Going into his third season, Chubb is undoubtedly one of the best running backs in the NFL, and with newish head coach Kevin Stefanski being a huge proponent of the run game, Chubb will get fed well.

So what might be some expectations for Chubb in year 3?

We’ll get into that here by emphasizing three goals for Chubb in 2020 for the Cleveland Browns.

The first goal is in relation to the general sense.
