Browns’ Nick Chubb breaks things wide-open with 70-yard TD scamper vs. Bengals
After a week filled with off-field controversies, the Cleveland Browns have so far taken care of business in their Week 9 road matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Browns came out firing in the opening half of the contest thanks to the three scoring drives orchestrated by quarterback Baker Mayfield. And now in the third quarter, running back Nick Chubb has essentially put the finishing touches on what is slated to be a crucial road win for Cleveland.
Chubb flew on by for a pivotal 70-yard rushing touchdown in the Browns’ second drive of the third quarter. Multiple Bengals defenders made an attempt to get to the fourth-year running back, but he simply veered away from them in the open field with ease.

Chubb has now scored six total touchdowns this season, which leads the team. More so, he is well on track to set a new career-high for total touchdowns in a single campaign, especially as he finished last season with 12 touchdowns scored over 12 games played.
In the big picture, this is just the performance that the Browns surely needed following the departure of wideout Odell Beckham Jr. last week. Barring any late collapse over the remainder of this contest, they will move to 5-4 on the season and will be back in the race in the AFC North.
