Cleveland Browns v Baltimore Ravens

BALTIMORE — Nick Chubb has become the first rookie in franchise history to achieve 1,000 or more rushing yards.

No Browns player has topped 1,000 yards in a season since Peyton Hillis in 2010.

Chubb did not get regular carries until Carlos Hyde was traded away in October.

The rookie has averaged nearly 89 yards per game since he took over as the starter Week 7.
