Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett provides hope in Week 5
Cleveland Browns fans have something to look forward to as Myles Garrett is expected to make his NFL debut this Sunday at home.
Cleveland Browns fans may have a tough time getting excited for this Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
An 0-4 record will do that.
But there is something to watch for, as Myles Garrett is on track to make his NFL debut and harass Josh McCown all Sunday afternoon.
Garrett cannot solve the defense’s problems on his own, but his presence on the field should help provide some sort of pass rush that has been nonexistent through the first quarter of the 2017 season.
Browns fans searching for positives can look to Garrett’s debut as a major point in time for this franchise. He is being relied upon to be a fixture on this defense for years to come, and that all starts Sunday.
Perhaps he can make a few big plays that alter the course of the game and help the Browns pick up a win. We all wanted to see him put Ben Roethlisberger on the turf in Week 1, but we will have to settle for McCown for now.
We take a look at this and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
