1. Cleveland Browns RBs Nick Chubb & Kareem Hunt

The Cleveland Browns best offensive weapons remain Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, who are coming off another game in which they were a lightning rod for Kevin Stefanski’s offense.

Look for more Chubb and Hunt against a Cardinals teams that doesn’t play the run well. Arizona’s allowed 695 yard this season, the fifth-worst total in the NFL. They’re surrendering 5.4 yards per attempt, which is under Nick Chubb’s 5.8 yards per carry average.

Chubb has 523 yards this season, which currently ranks second in the league.

Chubb and Hunt are the ingredients that get Kevin Stefanski’s offense cooking, as running the ball will set up play-action opportunities for quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Ideally, the rushing attack helps set up the Browns with an early lead, because Arizona’s high-powered offense could lead to another shootout.

Controlling the ball with a precision running attack may be the Browns best defense, which will keep Kyler Murray and his talented receiving corps off the field.
