For most of the 2019 season, the Cleveland Browns offense has been a disappointment.
Inexcusable losses to backup quarterbacks like Devlin Hodges and Brandon Allen, high penalties, poor offensive line play, suspensions, and off the field drama and highlighted most of the Browns year.
But, there has been one consistent positive in the 2019 season for the Browns.
Browns running back Nick Chubb is currently leading the NFL in rushing yards.

He ranks in the top 5 in yards from scrimmage.

Chubb is looking to finish the year as the league’s top rusher. If he accomplishes that, he would be the first Browns running back since Leroy Kelly in 1968 to do it.
Chubb is currently on pace for 1567 rushing yards.
This pace would still put Chubb at No. 2 for the Browns single-season mark owned by Jim Brown who rushed for 1,863 yards in the 1963 season.
