Kareem Hunt didn’t have many options at his disposal. Once the Browns running back got to the outside, there was a sea of Eagles defenders in front of him and to his left. The sideline was to his right.

So Hunt chose the only route left somewhat clear — he went up and over the defender, hurdling safety Jalen Mills en route to the end zone in the fourth quarter, putting his team ahead by two scores once more.

Hunt’s score followed a few plays after Nick Chubb broke off a 54-yard scamper, including a stiff arm to set him free. Chubb did most of the work in Cleveland’s backfield on another rainy day at FirstEnergy Stadium, surpassing the century mark on the ground.



But Hunt’s hurdle was a highlight-reel play, one to watch again and again. Plus, it played a role in dropping the Eagles to 3-6-1, keeping the NFC East wide open.
