By the Numbers: Nick Chubb's 2nd half surge carries Browns

We're digging into the stats after the Browns' 27-19 win over the Bengals on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.

99 - Nick Chubb only rushed three times for 7 yards in the first half, but he exploded for 96 yards in the second half to help the Browns slowly score points and run out the clock to fatigue the Bengals defense.

9 - Chubb is now ninth in franchise history with 1,281 rushing yards in a single season. He also broke 100 rushing yards for the sixth game this season. The only players left on the list in front of Chubb? Mike Pruitt, Jamal Lewis and Jim Brown.

8 - The Browns defense has stepped up with eight interceptions in the last three games, their most in a three-game stretch this season.

3 - Unfortunately, the Browns have also struggled to limit their own interceptions. Baker Mayfield threw two interceptions in the first quarter Sunday and has three interceptions in the last three games after throwing no interceptions in the three previous games.

25 - The Browns held the Bengals to a 25 percent success rate on third down and only allowed Cincinnati to convert on two third downs. Two of those stops came inside Cleveland's red zone. Cincinnati left points on the field, and the Browns defense deserves all of the credit for stepping up in a tight game.

3 - Baker Mayfield moved up to second on the Browns with three rushing touchdowns this season when he squeezed the ball inside the left pylon for a touchdown in the second quarter.

146 - The Bengals had a big rushing day, too, behind a 146-yard performance from Joe Mixon. The elusive running back averaged 6.3 yards per carry and found the end zone once.

3 - Bengals kicker Randy Bullock made four field goals Sunday. What's interesting about that? Well, three of those kicks came on the Dawg Pound section of the field, which has been notoriously tough for kickers this season. Bullock's field goals kept Cincinnati close, but they also signified how well the Browns defense played on its end of the field.

53 - Austin Seibert kicked a career-long 53-yard field goal in the third quarter to add another highlight to a quality rookie season. Seibert is 22-for-25 on the year, with all three misses coming on the uprights on the Dawg Pound end of FirstEnergy Stadium.

3 - Kareem Hunt's 3-yard touchdown to give the Browns a 21-13 lead in the second quarter gave him his third consecutive game with a touchdown. Hunt's quality rushing and pass-catching abilities have continued to add a new wrinkle to Cleveland's offense. He has two rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown thus far.
