Three carries for 105 yards and two touchdowns pretty much puts you into Golden Boy status, and Chubb is deserving.

Chubb received a 97.8 grade from Pro Football Focus, which is the highest game grade given to a Browns’ player this season.

When’s the last time the Browns’ got big plays from their running back, let alone two!?

His performance is already sparking debates how the Browns need to use him, more than Carlos Hyde.

Hyde’s run the ball decently and this is by no means a call to bench the veteran, but Chubb should be getting more than three touches.

Hyde had 22 carries for 82 yards, a 3.4 yards per carry average.

Chubb will return to the mean if given enough carries, although some on Browns’ Twitter are trying to make him out to be the next Jim Brown right now.

The rushing attack is far from perfect, and Chubb deserves more touches.

If there’s anything to take away from this game, it’s this question: Why did Hyde and Chubb only have 25 combined carries? The Browns had a 14-point lead in this one.
