“We needed him and he showed up,” said Browns cornerback Denzel Ward.
Chubb caught a touchdown pass, rushed for 130 yards and helped run out the clock as the Browns held on to avoid a season-wrecking upset and keep Detroit winless with a sloppy 13-10 victory over the Lions on Sunday. The star running back had a a 5-yard TD reception from Baker Mayfield and then helped the Browns put away the Lions.
The Lions couldn’t build off any momentum from their 16-16 tie a week ago in Pittsburgh and made some critical mistakes while growing their winless streak to 14 games.
The Browns took a two-TD lead late in the half with help from the Lions, who committed three penalties – two by cornerback Amani Oruwariye – on a 76-yard scoring drive capped by Chubb’s TD.
Boyle came in with just four career pass attempts.
