We’re breaking down the biggest stats from Cleveland’s 26-18 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
972 – Nick Chubb now owns the Browns’ single-season rookie rushing record after amassing 112 yards Sunday against the Bengals. He’s just 28 short of 1,000 after clearing Trent Richardson’s previous record of 950.
4 – Chubb cleared the century mark for the fourth time this season. He’s averaged nearly 89 yards per game since he took over as the starter Week 7.
64.6 – After his 27-for-37 effort Sunday, Baker Mayfield boasts a completion percentage of 64.6 on the season. The best mark in Browns’ history is owned by Hall of Famer Otto Graham, who completed 64.7 percent of his passes in 1953.
24 – Mayfield’s 24 touchdown passes on the season rank third all-time among NFL rookies. He needs just two to tie the record that is shared by Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson.
3,349 – After throwing for 284 yards Sunday, Mayfield is just 36 yards shy of Brandon Weeden’s record of 3,385 passing yards in a rookie season.
8 – It’s been eight years since the Browns finished in a spot other than last in the AFC North. That streak came to an end Sunday, as a win assured the Browns will finish in third.
9 – As has been customary through the second half of the season, Mayfield completed at least one pass to nine different players Sunday. His top target, Rashard Higgins, caught six passes for 60 yards.
20 – The magic number continued to work wonders for the Browns defense. Cleveland moved to 7-0 in games in which it limited the opponent to 20 or fewer points.
Minus-15 – The Browns defense limited the Bengals to minus-15 passing yards in Sunday’s first half. Jeff Driskel was sacked twice for a loss of 18 yards and had just 3 passing yards in a half Cleveland won, 16-0.
0 – The Browns offensive line did not allow a sack for the fourth time this season. More specifically, it’s the fourth time in the last six games.
