Garrett’s sack of Cam Newton gives him 12.5 on the season. He also had two tackles for a loss, three quarterback hits and forced a holding penalty.
Garrett can jump to No. 2 on the list with another sack against the Broncos. Jamir Miller currently holds the spot for record 13 sacks during the 2001 campaign.
Entering the contest, PFF graded Garrett as the NFL’s 14th best EDGE defender, which seems surprising low.
There’s even a small segment of Browns fans who feel Garrett isn’t doing enough. I’m not one of those people.
Aaron Donald wasn’t Aaron Donald from day one. Given Garrett another year or two, and we really might start seeing some special stuff. Donald, who is now a fifth-year veteran, never had over 11 sacks until this year (His 16.5 lead the NFL).
Garrett is in year two.
Garrett also had what, despite what video review showed, looked like a forced fumble. However, the refs deemed Cam Newton was in the act of throwing and the play was reversed.
With that said, Garrett was a disruptive force, as he usually his.
