CLEVELAND (AP) — Nick Chubb returned from a stint on injured reserve and scored a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, and the Cleveland Browns pushed through rough weather for a 10-7 win over the Houston Texans.

Chubb reeled off a 59-yard run with 1:07 left and then smartly ran out of bounds at the 2-yard line instead of scoring so the Texans, who were out of timeouts, wouldn’t get the ball back.

Chubb finished with 126 yards on 19 carries.

Kareem Hunt finished with 104 yards, including 37 on Cleveland’s final drive as the Browns ran out the clock.

The Texans couldn’t muster much offense as swirling winds blew Watson’s passes off course.
