Baker Mayfield-led Cleveland Browns began the 2020 NFL season with a humiliating drubbing at the hands of Baltimore Ravens. However, they bounced back with a win over Cincinnati Bengals last weekend.
One of the standout performers in that game was the star running back, Nick Chubb. He terrorized the Bengals offense all night as rushed for 120+ yards and posted two rushing TDs. He will be for the Browns who play Washington Football Team in Week Three.
Here’s what popular Cleveland Browns wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr, said about his teammate in a recent interview.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr. is expecting big things from star running back Nick Chubb. Here’s what the seasoned NFL wideout said about his teammate ahead of Sunday’s game against Washington Football Team.
“I want that big block that springs him free just to see him running down the field. Just to see him running free and down the sideline is going to be a great feeling.”
“Nick Chubb needs to be the No. 1 rusher in the league, or Kareem, too. You have two legitimate No. 1 backs in the backfield, and our team is very, very, very good at running the football, so you have to play to your strengths.”
“I think you learn where you fit in and where you are able to make your plays and how you can help the team,” Beckham said. “I think a lot of my growth came in just knowing that is what it’s going to be and finding a way to create that block that springs (Chubb), or whatever it is to help us win,” Beckham said via the team’s official site.
Head Coach Kevin Stefanski will be without the services of DE Olivier Vernon (abdomen), LB Jacob Phillips (knee), and CB Greedy Williams (shoulder) for Sunday’s game. They will go up against a strong Washington side who suffered a loss to Kyler Murray’s Arizona Cardinals.
Following this week’s game against Washington, the Browns next play Dallas Cowboys in Week Four. Let’s hope Baker Mayfield carves up some magic over the next couple of weeks. If not, he might turn into ‘public enemy number one’ in Cleveland.
