rookie of the week in Pepsi’s Week 4 voting poll.The rookie set an NFL record in his breakout game , totaling 105 yards and two touchdowns on just three carries. In the 1,200 instances in NFL history where a player rushed for over 100 yards and had two scores, no one had ever done it in only three attempts, per Elias Sports bureau (via ESPN):Chubb joins Baker Mayfield (Week 3) and Denzel Ward (Week 1) as winners of the vote. With three different winners already among Cleveland’s first four picks from last April’s NFL draft, you could say John Dorsey’s first draft class in Cleveland is off to a pretty decent start.Prior to 2018 and since the award’s origination in 2002, the Browns had just five different weekly rookie winners—Andr茅 Davis once (‘02), William Green three times (‘03), Charlie Frye three times (‘06), Trent Richardson once (‘12), and Corey Coleman once (‘16).The award is making Cleveland realize it needs to get the elusive and powerful Chubb more involved in its game plan.“[Carlos Hyde] is our workhorse, but at the same time, we have a guy that is making huge plays, difference-making plays ,” offensive coordinator Todd Haley said on Thursday. “Around here, I believe strongly in you earn the right to make plays, and he has certainly earned the right with a couple of those runs.” Haley still referred to Hyde as his starting running back, and stressed the difficulty in managing backfield rotations. But he’s not oblivious to Chubb’s talent and early results. It’s probably fair to think we’re going to see more of the rookie in the coming weeks.Hyde hasn’t been bad, he’s played about as expected so far, but Chubb shares some of his strengths while mixing in some elements of shiftier teammate Duke Johnson’s skill-set. If he can earn his coach’s trust in pass protection, which may be one of the limitations he’s battling, it’s possible Chubb can begin to cut into both player’s snap counts. Cleveland Browns youngster Denzel Ward, the No. 4 pick in last April’s draft, earned honors as the NFL’s top rookie for Week 1. Ward, 21, showed every reason why the Browns drafted him with so highly, playing reliably in both run and pass defense. He became the fourth-youngest player to record two interceptions in a game and finished with six total tackles.The award had some pretty strong competition , with No. 2 pick Saquon Barkley—106 yards rushing and one rushing touchdown—and No. 4 pick Sam Darnold—198 passing yards and two touchdowns—both finishing with strong debuts. Vikings Cornerback Mike Hughes and Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay were also in the running of the voting poll.“It was nice to see [Ward] make plays, and it was also a big smile to my face of how comfortable he felt playing in the game,” defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said Friday. “He has some things he has to continue to improve.”Despite the remarkable debut, the rookie allowed a back-shoulder touchdown to Antonio Brown. Yep, that guy. Although Ward played it nearly perfectly, Ben Roethlisberger was able to thread the needle, putting the ball inches—maybe millimeters—out of Ward’s reach as he reacted to the play.“We call that play – I am glad you said that – an earned play. That play was highly earned,” Williams said of the picture-perfect touchdown. “He was as good as you can almost be. “Just a small percentage point that he is usually able to separate the ball at the very end of the play.”In his first game, Ward balled out, and he came microscopically close to thwarting an excellent play between savvy veterans. Williams acknowledged them “earning” that score, and then said he hasn’t lost trust in his young corner and will continue to put him in those positions.There’s something to Ward’s reserved-but-confident demeanor. From the jump he has shown up saying very little while letting his play speak for itself.That play has so far surprised many who questioned his selection so high in the draft. Those people probably hadn’t seen him play before and didn’t understand the technical talent and physical skills he brings to the table.Those people are quickly becoming believers.The newer but just as deadly Drew Brees and Michael Thomas combo are up next, so we’ll see what the rookie has for an encore this Sunday in the dome.
