Browns RB Nick Chubb’s game-clinching TD draws fired-up reaction from LeBron James
After blowing a double-digit lead in their season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Browns sure knew that they simply needed a statement performance against the Texans to avoid an 0-2 start. And Chubb made sure Cleveland would come out of the contest with a win.
The Texans simply had no answer for Chubb during the game, as the fourth-year running back totaled for 98 yards from scrimmage and one rushing touchdown.
The rushing touchdown for Chubb came when Cleveland needed it the most, as he put the finishing touches on a 31-21 win with a 26-yard score in the fourth quarter.
Good luck trying to tackle @NickChubb21 in open space.

This rushing touchdown for Chubb not only secured the win for Cleveland, but it was also a historic one in Browns team history. Dating back to last season, the former Georgia standout has recorded a rushing touchdown in eight straight games, which bests Jim Brown’s personal record of seven such games.

The Browns will now look ahead to another early-season test when they will clash with the Chicago Bears in Week 3. The Bears’ daunted front seven sure will have a hefty task ahead of them to contain Chubb next week.
