RB Nick Chubb (12.14.20)

RB Nick Chubb:

On QB Baker Mayfield’s performance:

“He fought, just like everybody else. We follow Baker’s lead. We had a little adversity throughout the whole game, but that didn’t steer us away from what we wanted to do. We kept fighting to the end. This team competed today. Props to the Ravens. They played hard and ended up winning.”

On positive takeaways from tonight’s game:

“This team showed fight. That is about it. We never gave up.”

On his reaction when Ravens QB Lamar Jackson came out of the tunnel to finish the game-winning drive:

“He is great. He is definitely a game-changer and a big playmaker. He came out and made a great play on us.”

On whether or not this game made a statement to the rest of the division that the Browns will be competitive moving forward:

“We have certainly improved from the first time we played them, but we still have a way to go before we get where we all want to be. This game did show that we can come out and fight and compete with some of the better teams in this division.”

On the Browns’ first half performance:

“We kind of hurt ourselves at the beginning and throughout the whole game with penalties and things like that. We can clean that up and we can always improve.”

On if it is a heartbreaking loss and if he is concerned about the team’s playoff chances after the loss:

“It is hard. I always say that the close losses are harder than getting blown out. We have to take it one game at a time. I don’t know where we are right now [in the playoff scenarios], but the only thing that matters is the next game. We will focus on the next game and figure everything else out after that.”

On the Browns running game finishing strong after a slower first half:

“I thought (Head) Coach (Kevin) Stefanski did a great job of keeping us balanced and not getting away from the run altogether. He did a great job of calling the plays. We just have to find a way to finish the game.”

On if this game felt different than the first game against the Ravens:

“It felt different. It felt good. We came out and we made it a close one.”

On Jackson’s performance and big plays:

He played good.”
