Browns vs. Texans: 3 offensive players who stood out in Week 13
1. Nick Chubb, Running Back
The two-headed monster at running back for the Browns was clicking as Nick Chubb had another impressive game. At this point, you start to get used to games like this from Chubb who is truly a special player. He finished this week with 17 carries for 80 yards on 4.7 yards per carry though he was unable to catch his only target in the passing game.
It speaks to the talent and consistency of Chubb when it’s considered a down game because he had less than five yards per carry. It’s almost expected that Chubb will put up at least 70 yards of the game like it isn’t an impressive feat. There were multiple plays in which the play seemed like it was over but Chubb kept his legs driving and added more yards to the run.
Being able to lean on the running game on a day in which your quarterback needed to be picked up is a luxury for this team. Though the Browns will need a lot of help to make the playoffs this year seeing a game like this is encouraging.
Cleveland fans should appreciate getting to watch Nick Chubb play every week as he is truly one of the league’s best at the position.
