Chubb ran for 76 yards on 18 carries and hauled in all four of his targets for 69 yards and a receiving touchdown during Sunday's 48-37 wild-card win against the Steelers. Having paced the NFL with 4.0 yards per carry after contact this season, Chubb netted his second consecutive 1,000-yard rushing campaign despite missing Weeks 5 through 8 because of a sprained MCL in his right knee. He also entered the playoffs with seven rushing TDs over his final six regular-season outings. After chalking up 108 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries against Pittsburgh last Sunday afternoon, Chubb rumbled for 17 yards on his opening carry of the wild-card round, following that up with a 20-yard scamper on the next play. He also made a vital contribution in the passing game, with his 40-yard receiving score in the fourth quarter shifting the tide back in Cleveland's favor for good. A divisional-round matchup against the Chiefs offers a challenge, as Kansas City held opponents to 90 or fewer rushing yards in five of its final seven regular-season games.
Chubb carried the ball 14 times for 108 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Steelers. Chubb topped 1,000 rushing yards on the season with his third carry of the game -- a 47-yard touchdown. That feat is even more impressive given that Chubb missed four contests with a knee injury, beginning in Week 5. He closed the season strong upon his return, topping 100 total yards in all but two of his last eight efforts. He'll play a key role in the Browns' potential playoff success and will continue to lead the team's backfield.
Chubb rushed 11 times for 28 yards and a touchdown while catching all five of his targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Jets. Chubb was bottled up in the first half, mustering only six yards on eight carries as Cleveland fell into a 13-3 hole. The team largely abandoned the run while playing catch-up after halftime, but Chubb managed to salvage his day with a one-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. He also set a new season high with five catches. Chubb should see a heavier workload on the ground in Week 17 as the Browns try to break a 17-year playoff drought against Pittsburgh.
Chubb rushed 15 times for 50 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Giants. Chubb punched in a one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to salvage what would have been a mediocre outing in a favorable matchup (the Giants entered ranking 20th in points allowed to opposing running backs). It was the first time the star back was held under 4.0 yards per carry in a game this season (3.3), which is not surprising given that he entered the contest with a league-best mark of 5.9 yards per tote. The fact that Sunday's modest output is considered a down performance is a great indicator of the elite level Chubb has been performing at in 2020. The 24-year-old will look to break the 1,000-yard mark in rushing yards (his next start will only be his 11th of the season) when the Browns take on the AFC version of New York's football club Sunday.
Chubb rushed 17 times for 82 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 47-42 loss to the Ravens. He also caught both of his targets for 21 yards. Chubb set the tone for the Browns in the first half, scoring from seven yards to cap Cleveland's opening drive before punching it in from 14 yards prior to halftime. The tailback kept it going in the second half, although teammate Kareem Hunt scored twice when Chubb came out. Despite Hunt's presence, Chubb has been dominant this season, and he's been particularly hot lately. Over his last five outings, the 24-year-old is averaging nearly 110 rushing yards and has scored five times. That form should instill further confidence in Chubb despite facing an improved Giants defense in Week 15.
