Nick Chubb up for NFL Rookie of the Week after breakout game in Oakland

Browns running back Nick Chubb is a finalist for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week after a breakout game in Oakland.

Chubb ran for 105 yards and two touchdowns on three carries in Sunday's overtime loss to the Raiders. 

Chubb, the former Georgia star and 35th overall pick in the 2018 draft, is up against Texans receiver Keke Coutee, Patriots running back Sony Michel, Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley and Chargers safety Derwin James.

He's the third Browns rookie to be nominated for the award, joining cornerback Denzel Ward (Week 1 winner) and quarterback Baker Mayfield (Week 3 winner).
