A Washington Football Team NFC East foe looked to catch a break when an opposing star running back suffered a first-half injury on Sunday. Instead, that opposition only came back harder.

Dallas defensive lineman Tyrsten Hill landed on Chubb's leg before the running back was able to walk off the field on his own with some discomfort in his knee.
Without Chubb, one of the NFL's best backs, Cleveland still continued to click offensively. Whether it was Baker Mayfield or Jarvis Landry throwing the ball, the Cowboys secondary was out of sorts and Odell Beckham Jr. benefitted - catching two touchdown passes before halftime.
Backup RB Kareem Hunt also picked up the load on offense. He scored two touchdowns and rushed for 71 yards with an average of 6.5 yards per carry through the first three quarters.
