3. After three sacks in two games, defensive end Myles Garrett is held sack-less.
The Browns may be 0-6, but just seeing Garrett on the field is enough of a reason to watch. The first-overall pick has been as advertised with two sacks in his debut and another sack last week. Even better for this week, defensive coordinator Gregg Williams insinuated Garrett will be full-go on Sunday.
Typically, a “turned loose” Garrett would signal great things for the Browns, but he faces an extremely-difficult challenge in Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan. According to Pro Football Focus, Lewan is the sixth-best tackle in football this year and a much better player than either tackle Garrett has faced so far.
While Garrett said earlier this week he “(has not) shown everything yet and will have to try something new” against Lewan, it is tough to believe it will not be something Lewan has never seen before.
Garrett will be helped by the lack of movement of Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota due to injury. However, this tough matchup makes it tougher for Garrett to replicate his past performances.
