3. Browns RB Nick Chubb

It was surprising to see Nick Chubb struggle against the Bears, as he only a low 3.8 rushing yards per attempt.

Kareem Hunt had to give the running game a spark, but I’d look for. Chubb to bounce back in Week 4. He didn’t receive one target, which meant the Bears could stand the box against the former second-round pick.

For as great as Chubb is, and he’s terrific, it’s hard to make everyone miss when they know you’re coming right at them.

The Browns may not fall in line with the rest of the where the emphasis is on passing, passing and passing, but successfully running the ball is what sets everything up for Baker Mayfield and the offense. If those rushes are successful, the play-action becomes available for Baker and these is gravy, including some hopefully downfield looks to OBJ.
