Ogbah forces two fumbles

Despite the poor defensive performance by the Browns in Sunday’s loss to the Bengals, sophomore defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah had a decent game.

He had a sack, four tackles and assisted on two others while forcing two fumbles, though the Browns only were able to recover one (and Ogbah did it himself). The turnover he forced could and should have got the Browns on the scoreboard first but the offense failed to convert.

Ogbah was the No. 32 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and after a slow start got himself rolling at the end of last season. He has two forced fumbles, two sacks and seven solo tackles in the first quarter of the 2017 NFL season and only looks to improve on that. Ogbah was also able to add three run stops during the game.

His speed is impressive and the ability to make a move off the snap has provided him opportunities at the quarterback throughout the 2017 season.

However, offenses have recognized this and without another viable pass rusher, they will continue to ensure Ogbah is properly blocked even if that means double protection.

Ogbah continues to impress in his second season with the Browns. He has a high motor and putting Garrett on the other side of the line should make for a fun pass rush.
