This one’s gonna sting for those of us who had the Cleveland Browns at -3.5 and others who had Nick Chubb starting in their fantasy football lineups.
The Browns were running out the clock and Nick Chubb broke out for what would have been a 60 yard touchdown run. Instead, he did the wise thing and ran out of bounds at the 1-yard line. It allowed the Browns to take a knee and run out the clock rather than give the Texans the ball back with a chance for some kind of crazy miracle.
It was the smart play, but it was also frustrating for those with a financial interest. The Browns were 3.5-point favorites but gave up a late touchdown to the Texans. It was 10-7 and the Browns got the ball back with 4:59 to go. It was enough time to break through for a score, but alas it did not happen.
I didn’t start Chubb in any fantasy leagues, but I did have the Browns -3.5. Sad face emoji.
