It is Thursday, September 29, 2022, and the Cleveland Browns will soon be traveling to Atlanta for their Week 4 game against the Falcons on Sunday afternoon.
Preparations for the game headline the Thursday edition of Browns Nation news and notes.

A surprise on the list is Denzel Ward who is dealing with back and rib injuries.
This was not known or apparent during last week’s Thursday night win over Pittsburgh.
2. A Homecoming For Chubb
Nick Chubb is a Georgia native.
This will be his first NFL game back in his home state.

As a rookie, Chubb faced the Falcons before at FirstEnergy Stadium.
If his results on Sunday are anything like his 2018 game against Atlanta, Browns fans will be elated.

3. “No Ego” Brissett
Speaking of low-key, Jacoby Brissett is embracing his opportunity and making the most of it.
He knows it is most likely an 11-game stint, but his main priority is winning.

He does not care how the Browns score points, be it on the ground or in the air.
Brissett is playing great and doing it with grace and humility.

4. Throwback Thursday
To honor Falcons week, we throw it back twenty years ago to a pivotal game for the 2002 Browns against the Falcons.
Flashback to December 29, 2002 when William Green’s 64 yard TD run pushed the #Browns into the playoffs for the first and only time since the return in 1999 💪
I’m ready to feel this type of atmosphere again. It almost looks fake seeing the fans this hyped up late in the year 😭 pic.twitter.com/JWTqqFTBPu

William Green‘s late-game touchdown run sealed the win for the Browns which helped pave their way into the playoffs.
This win by the 2002 Browns over the Falcons is ranked at No. 51 in the Browns’ Top 75 moments.
Happy Thursday Browns fans!
