Nick Chubb showed why he's the wrong choice to be mic'd up
The first three-touchdown game of his NFL career, former Georgia Bulldog Nick Chubb rushed for 165 yards on 20 carries (8.25 yards per carry) in the Cleveland Browns’ 40-25 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on September 29.
Wearing a microphone during the game for CBS’ broadcast, Chubb’s “mic’d up” video was one of a kind.
Not for the reasons you would expect, however. Chubb said very little at all throughout the course of the afternoon, most of the audio is courtesy of his teammates.
Take a listen, via the Cleveland Browns’ official Twitter account:
Starring for Georgia from 2014-17, Chubb racked up 4,769 yards on 758 attempts (6.3 YPC) and 44 touchdowns during his time in Athens. Paired with teammate Sony Michel, now with the New England Patriots, the two formed one of the most dynamic rushing duos in college football history. Chubb graduated as the program’s second all-time leading rusher, Michel third.
Falling just short of 1,000 yards (996) for the Browns as a rookie, Chubb appears to be well on his way in 2019. Through four games, he has tallied 398 yards and four scores for Cleveland (2-2).
The Browns will travel to Levi’s Stadium – the site of Clemson’s 44-16 victory over Alabama in last year’s national championship game – for a date with the San Francisco 49ers (3-0) on Monday, October 7.
Chubb’s No. 3 Bulldogs (4-0) are headed to Knoxville to battle the Tennessee Volunteers (1-3) on Saturday (7:00PM ET, ESPN).
