Cleveland Browns: 3 Matchups to watch vs. Bears in Week 3
Cleveland Browns run game against the Bears
The Browns simply have the best running game and duo in the league. With Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb leading the charge, it’s the go-to for the Browns offense and is what wins games for the team. The Bears defense got toasted two weeks ago against the Los Angeles Rams.
It was mostly by the pass but they also gave up big chunks of yards on the ground. Browns backs Chubb and Hunt hopefully will see the ball more in this game. If they can get 25 to 30 carries between the two of them, then you know the offense of the Browns has controlled the tempo of the game and certainly put themselves in a better position to win.
Chubb has yet to cross the 100-yard mark this season, mostly due to the Browns not giving him the ball more. Chubb only had eleven carries last weekend. I know the counterargument to this debate of running your backs more, especially Chubb is that the Browns are trying to nurture him more in the early stages of the season and don’t want to rush him
I get that to a degree, but Chubb is very durable, along with his partner Hunt. Push them and stuff them down the opposing team’s throats. Sometimes, I believe the Browns coaches and head coach Kevin Stefanski are playing a player like Chubb too cautiously. You have a 17 week season now, but you still have to play to win the games and win them handily, especially if you consider yourself a Super Bowl contender.
All in all, the Browns will continue to be the talk of the town and nation for what it’s worth. These are good times for our Brownies.
