Nick Chubb is on the verge of becoming the NFL's best running back and the Cleveland Browns' most unstoppable ball-carrier since Jim Brown.
Some may be taken aback by the previous statement. After all, Derrick Henry laid claim to the status of league's best back by rushing for 1,540 yards last year, and Brown is still considered by some to be the best player in NFL history.
Chubb nearly took the rushing crown a year ago, but Cleveland's previous coaching staff didn't display the same level of commitment to the team's best player as the Tennessee Titans did—which is part of the reason those coaches were fired after only one season.
Chubb had fewer than 20 carries in each of Cleveland's final five games, and the Browns limped to a 1-4 finish as a result.
Meanwhile, Henry built on a dominant second half with 377 rushing yards against the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens in the postseason.
The Titans' blueprint for success isn't complicated: Commitment to the running game is necessary to capitalize on a special backfield talent.
