Chubb rushed for 41 yards on 13 carries and caught one of two targets for one yard in Sunday's 33-23 loss to the Bengals in Week 17. The Browns played from behind for much of the game, but not so much that they should have abandoned Chubb. He finished with a season low in carries and yards while losing the NFL rushing title to Tennessee's Derrick Henry. In a disappointing season for the organization, Chubb was one of its few bright spots. Cleveland fired head coach Freddie Kitchens following the game, so there will be some changes to the team in 2020. Chubb, however, is expected to occupy the same role as the team's lead back.
Chubb gained 45 yards on 15 carries and did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Ravens. As Chubb has been the Browns' best player, the Ravens knew he was the first weapon to take away. The 45 yards from scrimmage is his lowest output of the season by a wide margin. If the Browns had entertained any thoughts of an upset or keeping their faint playoff hopes alive, they needed to open holes for him. Chubb will look to finish off the season with a better performance in Week 17 against the Bengals' 32nd-ranked run defense -- he averaged 7.1 yards per carry and gained 106 yards against them in Week 14.
Chubb rushed 17 times for 127 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Cardinals. He also caught all three of his targets for 21 yards. Chubb was once again Cleveland's best offensive player, averaging a whopping 7.5 yards per carry. That figure was aided by Chubb's 33-yard touchdown run during the second quarter, giving the tailback eight rushing scores in consecutive seasons. Although backfield partner Kareem Hunt excelled through the air, catching eight passes for 62 yards, Chubb remains the Browns' workhorse on the ground. Sunday was the seventh time he's topped the 100-yard plateau this season and the third time he's done so in the last four weeks as he continues his quest toward the NFL rushing title.
Chubb carried 15 times for 106 yards and caught his only target for 11 additional yards during Sunday's 27-19 win over the Bengals. Chubb averaged an impressive 7.1 yards per carry, although he was largely bottled up outside of an explosive 57-yard gain. He watched as Kareem Hunt received double-digit touches yet again and scored a short rushing touchdown despite lackluster results on most of his carries. Hunt's presence has certainly limited Chubb's weekly ceiling due to decreased usage, but he's still averaged 95.6 rushing yards over the last five games to put him near 1,300 for the season. He will look to thrive in next Sunday's favorable matchup against the Cardinals.
Chubb ran for 58 yards on 16 carries and added a 21-yard catch during Sunday's 20-13 loss to Pittsburgh. The Steelers held Chubb to his first game with less than 90 total yards of offense since Week 1. The sophomore back has been supremely productive, but he has just one touchdown in his last six outings. Kareem Hunt hasn't eaten into Chubb's carries too much since making his debut in Week 10, but he does have two touchdowns in four games. That will be worth keeping in mind heading into Sunday's contest against Cincinnati, thought the Bengals came into Week 12 surrendering 4.8 yards per rush, making Chubb a great start under just about every circumstance.
