Chubb capped his performance with a 59-yard run he ended by stepping out short of the goal line, preventing the Texans from getting the ball back. … RB Kareem Hunt added 104 yards last week and picked up two big first downs as the Browns ran out the clock. … Chubb and Hunt are the first Cleveland backs to run for 100 yards apiece since Hall of Famer Leroy Kelly and Ernie Green in 1966. … Chubb is averaging 6.1 yards per carry while Hunt has scored seven touchdowns: three rushing, four receiving. … The Browns placed starting RT Jack Conklin and K Cody Parkey on the COVID-19 list this week and their status for the game is in question. … Browns FB Andy Janovich may miss the game after being placed on the COVID-19 list. … Cleveland’s past two home games have been played in blustery, rainy conditions, and rain is in Sunday’s forecast. … WR Jarvis Landry has caught at least two passes in 104 straight games. … Following wins over Washington and Dallas, the Browns are tying to improve to 3-0 against the NFC East. … Fantasy tip: It could be tougher sledding for Chubb against Philly’s defensive front. He leads the league with seven runs of 20 yards or more.
