In Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, the Browns have one of the league’s best running back combos. Both have had seasons with over 1,700 run-rec yards. This happened in 2010 with both San Francisco (Frank Gore, Brian Westbrook) and Washington (Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson). What is the only other team since that time that has entered a season with two running backs who at one point during their career had each gone over 1,700 combined yards? For said tandem, both grew up in the same part of the country (almost the same hometown).
Oakland in 2018, with Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin. Lynch is from Oakland, while Martin is from Stockton. This Cleveland pair is a little different in that both backs are only 24 years old.
