Cleveland Browns key player No. 2: Myles Garrett
For the first two weeks, you might be asking where Myles Garrett is. Well, he is out there, but is getting double and sometimes triple-teamed when attempting to rush the quarterback.
Garrett is considered one of, if not the best defensive ends in the NFL today, yet so far his numbers do not show that.
He recorded his only sack of the season in Week 1 against Patrick Mahomes. In Week 2, Garrett was not able to get past the Texans offensive line, due in large part to left tackle Laremy Tunsil.
Sunday would be the perfect time for him to get to the quarterback early and often as the Bears are starting Justin Fields for the first time, as previously mentioned.
The Bears offensive line is not the best and have given up six sacks on the season, with Fields being sacked twice. Garrett could use this to his advantage and record a sack or two, if not more. For the Browns sake, they are hoping at least one sack will be a strip-sack, putting the offense back on the field.
For those saying they wouldn’t have paid Garrett all that money, relax. There are 15 games remaining, which is plenty of time for Garrett to do his thing.
This could be one of those games where we look back at Garrett’s performance fondly.
