NFL: Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

It was another big Dawg day in the NFL this week - especially for Nick Chubb.

A look at how the other NFL Dawgs fared this week...

Browns 40, Ravens 25

Nick Chubb, RB: Chubb rushed for 165 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries for the Browns. He also caught three passes for 18 yards. Chubb is ranked third in the league with four rushing touchdowns and fourth with 398 yards rushing.

His 88-yard touchdown run is the longest rush and the second-longest play in the NFL this season. According to Next Gen Stats, Chubb reached a top speed of 21.95 miles per hour on the run, eclipsing the fastest time in the NFL this year previously held by another Bulldog, Mecole Hardman of the Chiefs (21.74 MPH), on an 83-yard touchdown. By comparison, Chubb’s top speed at Georgia was 22.9 MPH during the Rose Bowl.

In addition, Chubb became third player in NFL history with at least two touchdown runs of 85 yards or more in their first two seasons. Chubb, who had a 92-yarder last season, joined Bob Hoernschemeyer (1946-47) and Chris Johnson 2008-09) on the list.
