1.Myles Garrett strip-sack

Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett recorded his first sack in the 2020 season, and it was a huge one. It came just shortly after the Browns failed to get any points after starting first and goal. The Browns were winning 21-13 at the time and it hurt not coming away with points.

After gaining 11 yards, it then eventually became a 3rd-nd-9 situation for Joe Burrow and the Bengals. The next play as Burrow dropped back to pass near his own endzone, Garrett avoided two blockers and came around the edge and batted the ball from the rookie’s hands for a strip-sack. The Browns recovered it at the Bengals one-yard line which soon resulted in a Nick Chubb touchdown run.

The Bengals may have converted that pass or perhaps been forced to punt, but instead, the Browns got those points back that they left out on the goal line due to Garrett’s sack. It then put the Browns up 28-13 and was a two-touchdown game. The Bengals fought back, but that swing seemed to be the dagger in the game that the Bengals could not overcome.

Cleveland is going to need Myles Garrett to make plays of that magnitude on several occasions this season. He is a game-breaking player and he showed that in week two with the biggest play of the game.

Next. Browns found their offensive identity. dark

The Browns now have a 10-day break until they take on the Washington Football Team and look to go 2-1.
