Nick Chubb set two Cleveland Browns records on Sunday, busting a 92-yard run for the longest touchdown run and longest rush from scrimmage in franchise history.
Before Chubb’s record-breaking run against the Atlanta Falcons, the longest rushing touchdown and longest rush from scrimmage in Browns history belonged to Hall of Fame back Bobby Mitchell, who broke free for a 90-yard score against the Washington Redskins on November 15, 1959, in a 31-17 victory.
With his 92-yard run, Chubb tied Bo Jackson and Kenny Washington for the 15th-longest rush in NFL history. The longest run belongs to Tony Dorsett, who broke off a 99-yarder for the Dallas Cowboys on January 3, 1983, in a 31-27 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
The run gave Chubb 158 yards on 14 carries on the day to go with two catches for 26 yards and another score.
Chubb rarely saw the field in the early going of season, carrying the ball three or fewer times in each of Cleveland’s first six games. But he took the reins in Week 7 with Carlos Hyde struggling with a foot injury, and he hasn’t looked back. The team’s since traded Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Across three games heading into the Sunday matchup with the Falcons, Chubb carried the ball 58 times for 230 yards and a touchdown.
