3. Nick Chubb breaks 150 yards

The last time the Browns and Falcons met was in 2018 in Cleveland. For Nick Chubb, it was his rookie season and he was still proving he was a featured back in the NFL. This game against Atlanta was huge for the entire franchise since it was a major upset win, but it was even more important for Chubb.

General manager John Dorsey traded Carlos Hyde earlier that season to keep the coaching staff from limiting Chubb and he had his best performance of the season in this one. No. 24 finished with 176 yards rushing and 33 through the air. He also had a receiving touchdown as well as a 92-yard rushing score that put him in the record books for the longest rush in team history.

Atlanta has struggled some against the run this season, currently in the middle of the pack in terms of yardage surrendered. That bodes well for Chubb, who can rack up yards even when facing elite rushing defenses.

As they look to take the home crowd out of the game and open up the play-action pass, Chubb should get the ball early and often. That should result in another huge game for him and this bold prediction is that he tops 150 yards on the ground, keeping himself on pace to be the No. 1 rusher in the league when the 2022 season concludes.
