1. Cleveland Browns Running Back, Kareem Hunt
Kareem Hunt could start for roughly 30 teams in the NFL.
However, he happens to be on one of the only teams where he’s not going to be the No. 1 back. That’s because the Browns have Nick Chubb as their starting running back and while Chubb is one of the best in the business, it’s not as if Hunt is that far behind him.
He showed that once again on Sunday when he took over the game. With the Bears defense slowing Chubb down and forcing Cleveland to work for every yard they had, Hunt ended up providing the big plays.
Hunt had a couple of nice receptions on their final drive before the half that set up a touchdown pass to Austin Hooper and gave the Browns their first lead, 10-7. He then started to break off one solid run after another, none more impressive than his 29-yard touchdown that ended Chicago’s hopes of a comeback.
On that play, Hunt was nearly tackled for a four-yard loss but shook the defender and ran it 29-yards to the house.
He finished the day with 81 yards on the ground and 74 through the air. That gives him 165 yards rushing and 104 receiving with two touchdowns in his first three weeks.
Not a bad start at all for Hunt as he continues to prove he’s the best No. 2 back in the NFL —‚ and it’s not even close.
