1. Both Chubb and Hunt run in touchdowns
The thing that’s really exciting about the Cleveland Browns offense in 2020 is the fact that they will have both of their star running backs available from the start. Last year, they signed Kareem Hunt in the offseason but he was suspended for the first eight weeks.
Cleveland was able to ride Nick Chubb and in the end, he finished with 1,494 yards which landed him second in the NFL. Once they had Hunt available, they continued to run heavily with Chubb but Hunt was a major weapon in the passing game — catching 37 passes for 285 yards and a touchdown.
This season, the Browns are expected to run the ball more and there’s an expectation that both players will be getting double-digit touches in every game. And with the talent Hunt possesses, there’s no reason not to get the ball in his hands more.
Hunt led the NFL in rushing as a rookie in 2017 and was on pace for an even bigger campaign in 2018 before a video was released that showed him in a physical altercation with a female. That led to Hunt being let go by the Chiefs but now that he’s more than a year beyond that incident, he’s ready to make the most out of his new chance.
In the first week of this season, look for Hunt and Chubb to both start out hot as they each get in the end zone with a rushing touchdown against Baltimore.
