Stud: Kareem Hunt
Kareem Hunt is back for the entire season for the Browns in 2020, and he started his second year with his hometown team in a positive way. Hunt led the Browns in rushing with 13 carries for 72 yards for an average of 5.5 yards per attempt. His longest run was for 22 yards as he showed his big-play ability. He also had four catches for nine yards.
Hunt may not have lit up the stat sheet — nobody on the Browns did — but he looked very good. He looked like the Kareem Hunt who won the rushing title with Kansas City in 2017. Hunt was explosive, ran hard, and was an excellent asset alongside Nick Chubb. His lack of yards on his catches was shocking, and will definitely improve his receiving yards in the near future, but he was at least a bright spot for the offense.
If he can continue to be the player he was Sunday, the Browns offense will be much improved. Nick Chubb will get going and that backfield can be scary. Having both talented backs for the entire season is going to be a huge weapon for Cleveland and Stefanski. It was nice to see Hunt have a good game in week one.
