Nothing can disrupt an offense worse than a disruptive pass rusher. Cleveland understands this not only due to the way Myles Garrett can make life hard on opponents but also due to what happened to them in Week 10.

Facing the Miami Dolphins, the Browns offensive tackles had a hard time dealing with Bradley Chubb. He constantly found himself in the backfield and while Jacoby Brissett was sacked just three times, there were a couple of holds and several passes had to be rushed.

Now in Week 11, they face one of Chubb’s old teammates in Von Miller. The former Denver Broncos star headed to the Rams at the deadline a season ago and won his second Super Bowl. He’s looking for even more and decided to sign with the Bills this offseason as he chases that ring.

So far in nine games, Miller has been everything Buffalo hoped he would. He has eight sacks and a total of 19 pressures. He’s spent the entire season camped in the offensive backfield and at 33-years of age, he’s been a great mentor for younger pass rushers such as Gregory Rousseau.

With the troubles Jedrick Wills has had this season, it wouldn’t be surprising at all to see Miller line up across from him. He’s also likely to win several one-on-one battles — which could destroy their offensive rhythm.

Cleveland has to make sure to slow him down and it would be wise to use tight ends to chip him while rolling to the other side as well. Whatever they do, they can’t allow him to get too familiar with Jacoby Brissett.
