The Cleveland Browns are struggling so far this season, as they hold a 2-5 record and are having trouble preventing their opponents from putting points on the board.
However, the one thing that has been going right for them is the play of running back Nick Chubb.
In fact, Chubb has been downright awesome this year, especially compared to his brethren.

A League Of His Own
He ranks first in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, yards after contact, missed tackles forced and explosive runs, as he is seemingly carrying the Browns on his broad shoulders.
Chubb has had over 100 rushing yards in four of his seven contests so far this season, and his 5.9 yards per rush attempt is tied for sixth in the NFL.
He is simply a machine that cannot be stopped, and sometimes there is no way to even contain him.
Coming into this season, some in Cleveland figured Chubb was poised for a truly special season, and so far, he has delivered on such prognostications.
It’s a shame that the Browns have had trouble winning this year, as it seems Chubb’s prolific output is going to waste.
Much of the concern going into the year was focused on the quarterback position, as new acquisition Deshaun Watson, a three-time Pro Bowler, was suspended for the first 11 games of the schedule, leaving career journeyman Jacoby Brissett to man the spot.
Although Brissett has been lackluster, the Browns defense has been even more lackluster, as it ranks 24th in rushing yards allowed, 28th in points allowed, and next-to-last in rushing touchdowns allowed.
However, the team seems to have plenty of potential, at least offensively, once Watson is allowed to return and start playing with his new teammates.
