Ask any Browns fan what they like most about the 2020 Browns through the first two weeks of the season and a whole lot of them will answer Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. This is, of course, an organization with a statue of Jim Brown, the greatest running back of all-time, outside its home stadium. Browns fans fondly remember the rushing duo of Kevin Mack and Earnest Byner.
When is Washington Football Team vs. Browns Week 3? originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington Two weeks into the 2020 NFL season, the Washington Football Team is 1-1 and tied for first place in the NFC East.

That got him a spot on the 53-man roster.
His 16 targets and 12 receptions in coverage both lead all Browns defenders after two games, and he is tied for fifth in targets among NFL defenders. Goodson is seeing a target every 5.1 coverage snaps. Only five players are seeing targets at a higher rate with as many snaps.
