The Cleveland Browns pulled off a big win on Sunday afternoon.
There were times where this game was more nerve wracking than fans expected.
However, the Browns put the pieces together, made the plays they needed, and squeezed out a win over the Texans by a score of 31-21.
Running back Nick Chubb was the last Brown to score in the game.
His 26-yard run put the game comfortably in the Browns’ hands in the 4th quarter.

Chubb’s Job Was Not Easy Today
The Texans were winning the battle at the line of scrimmage early in the game, and Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt were both struggling.
Chubb had a one-yard run and lost four on another attempt.
The Browns used fullback Andy Janovich to shake things up; he scored the first touchdown of the game.
It took until the second quarter for Chubb to finally break free for a 21-yard run.
Chubb finished the day with 11 rushes for 95 yards and a touchdown.
Considering he had 47 yards on 2 rushes, he was working hard for each yard gained on those other 9 runs.
In his postgame press conference, Chubb credited the offensive line for continuing to press on the Texans to create opportunities, acknowledging that it did not come easy early.
It is all in a day’s work for Chubb who bounced back from last week’s rare fumble.

Chubb In The Record Books
Nick Chubb’s late-game touchdown did more than ice the game.
It put him in the record books with his 31st career rushing touchdown.
That ties him for sixth overall with Marion Motley.
