1. Nick Chubb hits game-winning pay dirt to lift the Browns to 2-1 on the year
For a game where the Browns are largely outplayed, they figure out to win this game for one simple reason: They have Nick Chubb, and the Bears do not. In addition to Garrett playing out of his mind and the tight end trio stepping up in Landry’s absence to help Mayfield play better down the stretch, Chubb will be the reason Cleveland wins this game to improve to 2-1 on the season.
Chubb will rush for over 100 yards on the Bears defense. Though he will have to fight for most of the yards he gets, he will finally break one off in the most inopportune time for Chicago. On a third-and-long, Cleveland will run a draw play to set up the potential game-winning field goal. Instead, Chubb scampers nearly half of the football field for one of the best scores of the season.
The radio call of this season-altering play will be amazing. FirstEnergy Stadium will erupt in a manner we frankly, have never seen. This play will be the equivalent of Chubb’s Georgia running back patriarch Herschel Walker running over that poor Tennessee linebacker to save the Dawgs’ 1980 season. The only difference is these Dawgs are full-grown, and they are hungry in the NFL.
The Browns win arguably the zaniest game of the early-afternoon slate with only seconds left.
