Cleveland Browns rookie running back Nick Chubb is making the most of his opportunities against the Oakland Raiders, and it is resulting in touchdowns.
On Chubb’s third carry of the game, he scored from 41 yards out and gave the Browns a 42-34 lead over the Raiders with 4:20 remaining in the fourth quarter at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum in Oakland Sunday.
On second-and-four from Oakland’s 41-yard line, rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield took the shotgun snap from center JC Tretter and quickly gave the ball to Chubb as he ran behind left guard Joel Bitonio and left tackle Desmond Harrison.
Able to get away from Oakland’s initial defensive pressure, Chubb broke three more tackles before getting free and ramping up to full steam at the 31-yard line. With a downfield block from wide receiver Rashard Higgins, Chubb motored his way into the end zone for the touchdown.
Earlier in the game, Chubb rushed for a 63-yard touchdown, and the 41-yard scamper put him over 100 yards for the first time in his career.
