Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb nominated for FedEx Air, Ground Players of the Week

The Browns have two nominees for this week's FedEx Air and Ground Awards after the team's best offensive performance of the season.

Baker Mayfield is one of three nominees for Air Player of the Week and Nick Chubb is up for Ground Player of the Week. Chubb won the award Week 4 and was nominated after the Browns' Week 10 victory over the Bills.

Mayfield is coming off his best statistical performance of the season, as he completed 24-of-34 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns against the Dolphins. In Cleveland's last four games, Mayfield is 94-of-146 (64.3 completion percentage) for 1,031 yards with eight touchdowns and an interception. His competition for the weekly honor are two fellow members of the 2018 NFL Draft class, Jets QB Sam Darnold and Ravens QB Lamar Jackson.

Chubb amassed 164 yards of offense and a touchdown in Sunday's win. He logged his fifth 100-yard game on the ground with 106 rushing yards and now sits second in the league with 1,117 yards on the season. His competition is Titans RB Derrick Henry and Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny.

Fans can vote for Chubb and Mayfield until 3 p.m. Wednesday.
