Defensively, Jabrill Peppers had a great game when really it.
With the Michigan comments looming over him like a gray cloud, Peppers made everyone forget it about simply playing a good game.
He made his presence felt in the secondary, with four tackles and two passes defensed.
That seems like a meager stat line, but it doesn’t do Peppers justice.
Just think about watching the game. Didn’t it seem like Peppers was involved on a ton of players. You want someone who’s not shy about getting into the action, and that was Peppers on Sunday afternoon.
Special teams is still a work in progress, but Peppers did have a decent return of 12 yards in overtime. Nope, not game altering, but 12 yards is 12 yards in a game where very yard mattered.
This game served as step in the right direction and Peppers will learn that nobody gives two flips about where he went to college if he helps Cleveland win on Sundays.
