Broncos LB Bradley Chubb ‘not going to hold back’ against cousin Nick Chubb
The Week 15 matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Cleveland Browns will be a big one for the Chubb clan. That’s because Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb and Browns running back Nick Chubb — who are cousins — will square off for the first time as opponents in their entire lives.
However, Bradley believes neither one of the Chubb cousins will hold anything back once they step onto the field for their much-anticipated matchup.
“I know he’s not going to hold back and he knows I’m not going to hold back,” Bradley said on Tuesday per Chad Jensen of 247Sports. “It’s just going to be a regular football game. You can’t put too much weight on it because then if you start thinking, ‘My cousin’s on the other side,’ you end up getting trucked or something. You’ve just got to keep it pushing and just play.”
Chubb is coming off a two-sack game in the Broncos’ loss to the 49ers on Sunday. Those two sacks got him to 12 on the season, breaking teammate Von Miller’s franchise rookie sack record. Chubb is now just three sacks away from breaking the all-time rookie sack record held by Jevon Kearse.
Just like Bradley isn’t going to hold back against Nick, the Broncos pass rusher certainly isn’t going to hold back against Browns QB Baker Mayfield as he closes in on rewriting the NFL’s record books.
