Nick Chubb named FedEx Ground Player of the Week

Nick Chubb Week kept rolling Thursday with yet another award.

The Browns running back was named the FedEx Ground Player of the Week, beating out Jacksonville's Leonard Fournette and Bills veteran Frank Gore.

The honor comes one day after Chubb, who ran for 165 yards and three touchdowns in Cleveland's win at Baltimore, was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. It marks the second time he's won Ground Player of the Week, the last time coming after his breakout performance Week 10 against the Falcons.

He recorded an 88-yard touchdown run, the longest rush in the NFL this season and third-longest in Browns history. Chubb joined Bob Hoernschemeyer (1946-47) and Chris Johnson (2008-09) as the only players in league history with at least two touchdown runs of 85 yards or more in their first two seasons.

Chubb became the first Brown to record three rushing touchdowns in a game since Peyton Hillis on Nov. 28, 2010. Chubb also recorded the most rushing yards ever by a Browns player against the Ravens.

Chubb ranks fourth in the NFL with 398 rushing yards.
