CLEVELAND — Running back Nick Chubb earned the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance during Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Chubb rushed for 167 yards on 20 attempts, with a career-high three rushing touchdowns, according to a news release from the Browns. He recorded an 88-yard touchdown run, the longest rush in the NFL so far this season and the third-longest in Browns history.

Chubb became the first Brown to have three rushing touchdowns in a game in nearly a decade, the news release states. Payton Hillis was the last player to perform this feat back on Nov. 28, 2010.

Chubb is the first Browns running back to win the award since Hillis in 2010.
