Cleveland Browns dud: Wyatt Teller
For the second straight week, Wyatt Teller gets mentioned as a dud following his lackluster performance on Sunday. In Week 10, the entire Browns offensive line was listed as a dud, giving up far too many sacks and looking vulnerable at times in their run blocking.
This week, Teller earns the title of dud himself, following a lackluster performance, as well as a few penalties that got several big offensive plays called back.
Teller was called for a block in the back and a holding penalty, both of which wiped out large chunk plays that were perfectly executed by Baker Mayfield and the Browns. With an offense that has been struggling to find stability and get consistent execution, having their best plays wiped out because of penalties is not something you want to see.
Teller will likely get it cleaned up and get back to a high level of play, which is exactly why he was just signed to an extension. He deserves the negative attention after this game, however, especially considering the Browns were only one or two plays away from this game going the opposite way, and them finding themselves in the loss column.
Cleveland Browns stud: Nick Chubb
Nick Chubb is a great football player, and he showed it on Sunday afternoon with another strong performance. Chubb rushed for 130 yards on 22 carries, nearly six yards per carry, and also caught a touchdown pass on the day, doing everything he could to ensure the Browns won the game.
It should come as no surprise to anyone at this point that Chubb played well. In fact, if there was one player on Cleveland’s roster that you would bet on performing well every time they touched the field, it would be him. He’s the best offensive player on the Browns and is easily the MVP of this team for 2021.
The best part is, this is likely going to be something Browns fans see for a long time. Chubb agreed to a new contract with the Browns this offseason, and will probably sign a few more before his career is over.
Here’s to hoping that the Browns and Chubb continue their strong partnership because, without him, this offense would likely be a lot worse than it already is.
