CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb might have lost out on the rushing title this season, but he still has a shot at an award for his incredible rushing performance this year.

Chubb has been named a finalist in the 2019 FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Year, joining two other ground nominees: Panthers running back Christian McCaffery and Titans running back Derrick Henry.

This season, Chubb became the first Browns running back to rush for more than 1,400 yards since Hall of Famer Jim Brown did so in 1964.

Chubb lost out on the NFL rushing title this season after Henry rushed for 211 yards Sunday, giving him the surprise lead with 1,540 rushing yards over Chubb's 1,494 rushing yards.

Browns fans can help get Chubb the FedEx award by voting for him on the website. Voting runs from now until Jan. 30 at 3 p.m.

As part of the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year program, each winner will have $20,000 donated to the United Service Organizations in their name, helping to support service members and military spouses.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson have been named FedEx Air NFL Player of the Year finalists.

The winners will be announced at NFL Honors, a two-hour award show that will air on Feb. 1, the night before Super Bowl LIV, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on FOX.
