CLEVELAND — At times the ideal offense is a fantastic protection. On Sunday, Cleveland Browns security Karl Joseph proved that — and then some.
With the Browns’ offense stagnant via the first quarter of its 7 days 3 matchup vs. the Washington Football Workforce, Cleveland found alone in danger of slipping guiding its opponent by two scores. Joseph, even so, did his most effective to make sure that Washington couldn’t prolong its 7-3 lead, intercepting quarterback Dwayne Haskins and returning the ball 49 yards to the Washington 35-lawn line.
Despite the fact that Joseph fumbled on being tackled, Cleveland was able to maintain possession — and essentially progress the ball to Washington’s 28-lawn line — many thanks to a recovery from defensive back again Tavierre Thomas.
Three performs later on, the Browns ended up in the end zone for the very first time all afternoon with working again Nick Chubb scoring on a darting16-yard operate, supplying Cleveland a 10-7 direct.
Chubb’s touchdown marked his third of the time and came a single week soon after he rushed for two touchdowns in the Browns’ 7 days 2 gain around the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night time Football. And while each he and Kareem Hunt to begin with struggled to achieve floor from Washington and its monster defensive line, Chubb’s 16-property score was an encouraging indicator for the Browns offense.
