Nick Chubb scores on 88-yard touchdown run
Nick Chubb takes it to the house on a long run.
Chubb had two rushing touchdowns during the third quarter, and then the former Georgia Bulldogs star got loose for an 88-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter. The score by Chubb put the Browns ahead 30-18 at the time.
Chubb reached a top speed of 21.95 miles per hour on his run, per Next Gen Stats. That is the highest speed on a touchdown in the NFL this season, and it breaks the mark set by Chubb's former Georgia teammate Mecole Hardman, who reached 21.74 MPH on a score for the Kansas City Chiefs last week.

Entering the game, Chubb had rushed for just 233 yards on 58 attempts. The second-year running back was averaging four yards per carry, as the Browns began the 2019-20 campaign 1-2. Chubb's season-high rushing total on the season was a 96-yard effort in last week's defeat to the Los Angeles Rams, but he shattered that mark on Sunday.
Chubb, who was a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, finished his rookie season with the Browns as the starter after beginning the year as the backup. He started nine of his 16 games, rushing for 996 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground. Chubb also caught two touchdown passes.
The Browns began the season with high expectations after a trade for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. during the offseason. The team is hoping to turn things around after a slow start.
"It will help a lot just having the guys kind of have their eyes on me for a screen," Chubb told Browns.com this week about making big plays. "They don’t know if I’m running the ball or going out for a screen or running a route. It will just help everyone overall because we can do a lot of things behind me, in front of me throwing the ball over their heads or just running the ball. It will help out a lot."
