2. Miami won’t be able to stop Nick Chubb

This has easily been the best season for Nick Chubb in his five-year career. The former second-round pick out of Georgia already has 841 yards as he’s on pace to break his previous best of 1,494 with ease.

He’s also set to shatter his career-high 12 touchdowns with 10 in just the first eight games. Chubb has three games with multiple touchdowns already and is second in the NFL in yards on the ground — and not that far behind the leader, Derrick Henry.

As for the Dolphins, their defense hasn’t been great at stopping the run. After nine games, they’ve given up 1,057 yards and 11 touchdowns which means there will be a lot of running room for Chubb.

Having said that, the key to any solid running attack is having balance. Teams that don’t scare opponents with their aerial attack will always falter, which we saw this past Sunday night when the Tennessee Titans had 22 yards and a single first down in the second half when the Chiefs sold out on the run and dared Malik Willis to pass.

Cleveland hasn’t had that problem this season as Jacoby Brissett has made teams pay if they focus too much on the ground game. Considering Miami is even worse against the pass, don’t expect them to sell out the way Kansas City did against Tennessee. Instead, they’re going to have to keep an eye on the ground and aerial attack which is going to allow Chubb to have another huge game.
