2. Nick Chubb leads the league in rushing
I know, I know, Nick Chubb nearly lead the league in rushing in 2019 and was in the top three in yards per game last season. So how can you call him leading the league in rushing outlandish?
Folks, being a running back in the NFL is likely the worst job in professional sports. Fullback may be the only position I consider worse. Chubb continues to take a beating on his body and continues to deliver results. So, to do that for four straight years is a huge accomplishment.
A strong defense and the Stefanski scheme will make this prediction attainable. After struggling to get off the field in 2020, the Browns defense should be able to get the ball for the offense even more. And then Stefanski will continue to pound the rock to wear out the opposing team.
Not only do I believe Chubb will eclipse 1,600 yards in 2021 and win the rushing title, but I also look for him to average a touchdown a game for a total of 17 with the additional game next year.
While all the running will limit Mayfield’s stats, this team has shown to be selfless and only cares about winning. I know the league has gone pass-heavy, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t win the Super Bowl last year because of Tom Brady, they won because they had a great defense, a great offensive line, and a running game. All three things the Cleveland Browns will have in 2021.
