Nick Chubb is one of the best running backs in the NFL, and despite missing a good portion of the year with an injury, is still putting together a really impressive season.

While the missed time will certainly hurt his totals for this season, the Cleveland Browns running back is in range of breaking one of the more impressive rushing records, a record set by Jamaal Charles back in 2010.

Chubb is currently averaging 6.25 yards per carry this season. Charles' single-season record stands at 6.38.

While Chubb's season is already impressive in this sense, if he's able to bust out a few more long runs down the stretch, he really has a shot at breaking this record. Charles had a monster year in 2010, rushing for over 1,400 yards, with more than 450 receiving yards and 8 total touchdowns to go along with it.

Chubb has only played in 7 games so far this season, but he's actually averaging more yards per game (102.7) than Charles did in 2010 (91.7).

The Browns have been a very fickle team this year, but Chubb's play is one thing that has been rather consistent when he's on the field. If he gets even better down the stretch, this record could very well be his for the taking.
