The Cleveland Browns easily beat the Chicago Bears in Week 3. Here are three big takeaways from their second win of the season.
Suddenly, winning is expected when the Cleveland Browns take the field, and the players suiting up for them have not been disappointing.
Following a narrow defeat in Week 1, the Browns have now made it look easy with back-to-back double-digit wins. Sure, they were facing the Houston Texans and Chicago Bears, but good teams take care of the games they’re supposed to — which is what Cleveland did.
Now with a record of 2-1, we look back at their latest win with these three big takeaways, starting with the dynamic running back duo proving their worth once again.
3. The Cleveland Browns running back duo is unfair
Nick Chubb didn’t have his best game running the ball on Sunday. Even with that being the case, he had 84 yards on 22 carries which was an average of 3.8 yards per rush. And if that’s an off-day, that means he’s one heck of a back.
The good news for the Browns is, their other running back was playing out of his mind. Kareem Hunt finished with 81 yards on 10 rushes and added 74 yards on six receptions. He also ran in the touchdown that put the game away for Cleveland.
It was a great reminder of how good this backfield is for the Browns. They have two dynamic backs with differing styles and even when a team can slow one down, they can lean on the other to carry the load — and oftentimes, going with a different style back leads to something special.
