2. Cleveland Browns EDGE, Myles Garrett
Things were bad for the Chicago Bears this weekend. They had no answers for any of the Browns defenders as Justin Fields was sacked nine times on the day.
That was a huge reason that they were held to just 47 yards of offense which is the fewest the Browns have allowed since 1946 — and they just so happened to be wearing their 1946 uniforms on the day they did so.
In all, the Bears averaged just 1.1 yards per play and a huge reason for that was the fact that Myles Garrett continued to push them in the wrong direction.
While the aforementioned Jadeveon Clowney had two sacks, it was his fellow defensive end that stole the show. Garrett set a personal best with 4.5 sacks on the day and he probably could have had more.
Garrett, who entered the day with seven tackles and a sack completely went off in this one. He mentioned before the game how many times he was chipped against Houston as the Texans were clearly trying to keep him from ruining their game plan. Chicago, however, seemed to think Jason Peters could handle No. 95 one-on-one.
Perhaps there was a time when that plan would have worked — or at least wouldn’t have ended with Myles having a career day. But that time is long gone as the 39-year-old Peters had no chance whatsoever.
Garrett is one of the best players on this entire roster but after Sunday, even his stock is soaring higher than ever before.
