QB Jacoby Brissett 67 100% 21-of-34 (61.8%) for 230 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT. 3 rushes, 32 yards.
  • This was another above average performance by Jacoby Brissett, and it's just a damn shame that it was marred by his interception in the fourth quarter. I thought for sure he would run and pick up the first down, but not a touchdown. That would've set up a scenario where the Browns could've taken the clock to under two minutes and Los Angeles needing a touchdown to win.
  • Brissett had some blemishes, like in the first half when his scramble throw to Nick Chubb was lofted a hair too far, along with not finding the open receiever early on. But I still manage my expectations with Brissett, and he has been blowing them away.

Running Back

RB Nick Chubb 35 52% 17 carries, 134 yards (7.9 YPC), 2 TD. 0 catches (1 target).
RB Kareem Hunt 33 49% 11 carries, 47 yards (4.3 YPC), 1 TD. 3 catches, 10 yards (3 targets).
  • Nick Chubb was exceptional again; this season is the best I've ever seen from him. His ability to break tackles without even really taking a big hit can prolong his career too.
  • Some fans are arguing as to why Kareem Hunt is in the game to close out a half instead of Chubb; but I won't complain about their utilization. When the Browns were in range for a 54 yard field goal, I didn't particularly care about calling a lateral run to Hunt; I think a draw up the middle gives you an easy 5 yards, then you can hurry up and try a pass play from there.
