RB Nick Chubb (1.10.21)

RB Nick Chubb:

On his TD on the screen play:

“It was a great call. They blitzed into it and the linebacker to the side was on (QB) Baker (Mayfield). It was great execution by us. All of the linemen were up for the blocking. We just made the play.”

On if staying aggressive in the second half was a point of emphasis following halftime:

“Yeah, for sure. That team over there, a great team. We knew they were not going to quit. Two weeks ago, they had a comeback win. We know they are a great team and they were going to fight until the end so we had to keep fighting.”

On if the Browns discussed the Steelers comeback in the second half against the Colts prior to tonight’s game:

“Not necessarily. We did not talk about it, but we knew we had to do it from the beginning. There was nothing to talk about. We knew we had to put up a lot of points because that is a great team over there.”

On if he noticed a difference with offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt calling plays:

“No, I didn’t. He did a great job filling in for (Head) Coach (Kevin) Stefanski. I didn’t notice a difference at all.”

On the locker celebration after the game and if there is still a feeling that the team is not done yet:

“For sure. It is back to work. We are not going to celebrate this win too much longer. We are happy we won, but it is time to get back to work and focus on our next opponent.”

On why the Browns and Van Pelt decided to pass to the RBs more in the second half:

“I don’t know. You would have to ask him, but it worked for us.”

On how this moment feels and it being one of the biggest moments of his NFL career:

“I am excited, but this is just the first round. We have a long way to go. We are not going to celebrate too long.”

On if he is surprised Browns fans are shooting off fireworks in Cleveland after the win:

“I am not surprised at all. They deserve it.”

On if Browns players had a chance to talk to Stefanski on FaceTime after the game during the locker room celebration:

“He was on FaceTime, but it was loud so we couldn’t hear what he was saying. We all saw him and we all waved to him.”

On if Stefanski said anything to the team after the game via FaceTime about frustrations with not being able to celebrate with the team tonight:

“We couldn’t hear anything. The music was too loud. Everybody was pretty excited.”
