Cleveland Browns bold prediction No. 2: Chubb and Hunt both score twice
The Browns were able to move the ball at ease on the ground against Kansas City in their playoff game. They finished with 112 yards which might not seem like a lot but they accomplished that on just 22 attempts. Nick Chubb led the way with 69 yards on 13 carries whereas Kareem Hunt had 32 yards on six carries which gave them both a healthy average of 5.3 yards per attempt.
Where they weren’t really utilized in that game was through the air. Chubb had just four yards on two receptions and Hunt had two yards on just one catch. It wasn’t anything to write home about and it was also completely opposite of what we saw all season, especially with Hunt who is a weapon in the passing game — and the Chiefs know this as well as anyone considering he had his best seasons while playing for them.
In Week 1, the prediction for the two-headed monster is two-fold. One, both will be used in the passing game much more frequently, especially Hunt. Two, they will both cross the goal-line multiple times. Whether it be through the air, on the ground, or a combination of both, the Browns will score 28 of their points (assuming the kicker does his job on extra-point attempts) thanks to their impressive running backs.
