Only the Browns could make Nick Chubb feel bad for scoring a touchdown

The Cleveland Browns lost to the Jets in unimaginable ways in Week 2 and it feels like only this team could make Nick Chubb feel bad for scoring.

It was an absolute disaster at the end of the fourth quarter for the company Cleveland Browns in week 2 against the New York Jets. The team had a 99.9 percent chance of winning after Nick Chubb scored a touchdown with 1:55 in the game to move up to 30-17 after a missed extra point. But this is a franchise where history has told us that we should never discount the 0.01 percent chance that something terrible will happen.

Indeed it was. The Jets scored in just under 30 seconds, then recovered the onside kick drove and scored the go-ahead touchdown to get the win.

After Cleveland’s heartbreaking loss, it was time to play the blame game. And while there were plenty of players, people and coaches who could hand some of that, it seemed like Chubb had to take the brunt of the loss for his late goal when he could have landed just short of the goal line and the Browns had run let the clock.

Browns: Nick Chubb says he shouldn’t have scored last touchdown against Jets

On Tuesday, Chubb admitted he made a mistake that cost the Browns the game by scoring in that game and was very upset about it.

Credit to Chubb for being an undisputed leader and helping carry the weight of a historically heavy loss on his massive quads, but it speaks to the immense dysfunction of the Browns organization that he was put in the position to be in who he clearly felt it necessary to A • feel guilty about taking two points up and B. being the only one to be criticized for the loss.

Should Chubb, who has shown outstanding game awareness in similar situations earlier in his career, fall before reaching the end zone? According to the book, yes. But after he scored, the Cleveland defense should get a lot more flak for allowing Joe’s damn Flacco and the Jets to drive down the field and find the end zone twice in under two minutes.

Just when you think the Browns aren’t finding new ways to make you shake your head, this is what happens. Only the Browns could make Nick Chubb feel bad for scoring a touchdown
