5. Garrett has multiple sacks AGAIN
In case you are keeping score at home, the prediction last week was Myles Garrett would have multiple sacks vs. the Washington Football Team. Not only did he accomplish that, but his second of the day was also a strip-sack of which he recovered the fumble as well.
Once again Garrett was double for most of the day, but with all the attention on him, Larry Ogunjobi and Sheldon Richardson were both able to make a few huge plays because of one on one matchups. The defense was often winded last week as the high tempo was working for Washington.
While all teams have injuries, the Cowboys have been decimated on the offensive line with both starting tackles missing the first three games of the year. With Tyron Smith sidelined again in Week 3 (and not guaranteed for Week 4) and La’el Collins and Cameron Irving both on injured reserved, Garrett could be in for another huge day.
If the secondary continues to be banged up, the pass rush will be a huge benefit to a short-handed defensive backfield. If the Browns can get healthy, a strong pass rush and tight coverage could lead to the Browns first strong outing on defense. Expect the Cowboys to put up points, but Garrett could slow the entire offense down with a big day.
