4. Sheldon  Richardson

Sheldon Richardson continues to make impact plays for the Browns in 2020, and that didn’t change in Week 3.

He was credited with four tackles, and he also had a big takedown of Dwayne Haskins. He was also credited with deflecting another pass at the line of scrimmage–his second in as many games.

His partner up front, Larry Ogunjobi, entered the contest as one of the best run stopping interior lineman in the league. He continued to build off that reputation in the first half, when he got into the backfield and blew up running play for a five-yard loss.

Ogunjobi was credited with four total tackles, with two of those being solo takedowns.

Of note, the Browns showed different looks on the defensive line in this one, with Myles Garrett sometimes switching to the interior to try and bolster the pass rush.

Even with Olivier Vernon injuries, the Browns down front-four may be the strongest unit on the defense.
