Nick Chubb made history for the Cleveland Browns
For the first time in a very long time, the Cleveland Browns are above .500. The Browns are 2-1 after beating the Washington Football Team, marking the first time that the team has been above the .500 mark since 2014.
During the Browns win against Washington, Browns star running back Nick Chubb entered the Browns history books.
Chubb is the first Browns player since 1967 to have 100-plus rushing yards and 2-plus touchdowns in consecutive games.
In Sunday’s win against Washington, Chubb totaled 19 carries, 108 yards, and a couple of touchdowns. It is pretty clear that this Browns offense that is full of weapons all over the field is a run-first team.
If the run is not working early for the Browns, it is pretty evident that they struggle to get things going. Cleveland is spoiled to have such a powerful 1-2 punch when it comes to Chubb and Kareem Hunt, who had another solid game today as well.
While Baker Mayfield did not have the sharpest game today, he did just enough to put the Browns in the best position to win today. Mayfield also played a clean game today, having zero turnovers on the day. Today’s game against Washington is the first game since Week 10 of last season where Mayfield has not thrown an interception.
As new head coach Kevin Stefanski continues to settle in as the new head coach, he also continues to impress. His run first scheme leading to the play-action may seem simple, but it works, and it is a big reason why the Browns sit at 2-1.
