5. Cleveland Browns Chubb and Hunt factor
If you haven’t seen the NFL Films footage of Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb, take some time to check it out.
The men possess different personalities, but they’re teammates committed to supporting each other. That much is clear.
They’re also the Cleveland Browns best weapon. When one isn’t going right, the other can come into a game, capable of delivering a knockout punch.
Against the Vikings, the Browns will face an OK defense in the box. The down linemen are probably better at rushing the quarterback, but did respectably against Seattle against the run, posing a 66.7 grade. Alas, the Seahawks don’t have Chubb and Hunt.
The Browns also have Demetric Felton, a weapon that can make defenses uneasy by his mere presence on the field.
It will be worth watching if Felton cuts into Hunt’s snaps at all, as he did last week.
Additionally, look for Stefanski to dial up some passes for Chubb. The receiver didn’t get one target, which might’ve been the Bears were able to bottle him up for a 3.8-yard average.
