RB Nick Chubb (9.27.20)

RB Nick Chubb:

On how the Browns finished the third quarter:

“We played a great team. The Washington Football Team has a great defense. We knew it was not going to be easy, but we take pride in those 2-yard dirty runs and those 0-yard dirty runs because we know it takes a toll on the team, and eventually, we will bust one. The whole game everybody kept telling me, ‘Just be patient. It is going to pop. It is going to pop.’ I think it worked for us.”

On if it is just a matter of the Browns running game wearing down defenses late in the games before breaking longer ones, similar to last week:

“Yeah, that is what it is.”


On the impact of the Browns defense making timely big plays: 

“Yeah, it is fun to watch. When I am on the sideline, I am a fan of our team. Those guys had five turnovers. That is incredible. If they keep doing that, then we will always find a way to win. I think we also scored on every turnover, except for one before halftime, so that is great team ball.”

On how entertaining it is to see the Browns defense’s celebrations:

“I do not really pay attention. I saw them doing something, but when they make plays, it is time for me to go back out so I can’t really enjoy it with them.”

On Washington’s DL being as tough as advertised:

“That is a really good defense over there. It says a lot about us to be able to run against a great defense like that. We have to keep it going and keep getting better every week.”

On rushing for 100 yards against Washington’s defense:

“It is a great defense so it means a lot, not only for me but for our team.”

On the Browns being above .500 for the first time since 2014 and the importance of it:

“Every week is important. We went 1-0 this week. We have to keep doing that. It shows some positivity. We just have to find a way [to keep doing it].”

On the Browns’ offensive balance:

“It was overall a great team win. We ran the ball and passed the ball well, but it starts with the run. It is tough, but we have to go in and eventually open things up. Our defense did a great job, too. Overall, a great team win.”

On the Browns offense responding late in the third quarter and in the fourth quarter and if he felt pressure to respond:

“I think we all felt that pressure to get it in because we knew coming that this team came back the past two weeks on their opponent so we knew they were going to have push in the third and fourth quarter, and they did. That is a great team we played. We pulled together, and we found a way to win. We were able to get the run game going, we got in the end zone twice and we ended the game.”
