Browns RB Nick Chubb named NFL Rookie of the Week after breakout game

Nick Chubb's breakout game against Oakland could earn him more carries going forward. 

At the very least, it earned him the NFL Rookie of the Week. 

Chubb, who ran for 105 yards and two touchdowns on three carries in last week's overtime loss to the Raiders, beat out Texans receiver Keke Coutee, Patriots running back Sony Michel, Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley and Chargers safety Derwin James.

Chubb is the third Browns player to win the award in four weeks, joining cornerback Denzel Ward (Week 1) and quarterback Baker Mayfield (Week 3).
