5. Myles can’t be stopped
Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is basically unguardable, unfortunate for rookie quarterback Mac Jones.
Garrett already sent Jones a warning, including him in his quarterback graveyard, despite the fact the two haven’t played against each other yet.
Garrett is confident, and he certainly has the potential to be a difference maker on Sunday as he continue his Defensive Player of the Year campaign.
Belichick is going to use play-action to set up high percentage throws for his quarterback, as he’s been doing all season.
It’s similar to what the Browns do with Mayfield–and we know he’s taken plenty of sacks.
Jones isn’t going to be Patrick Mahomes, sending air mail all day. He’s going to check down and go through his reads. With Garrett’s quickness, he should be able to make Jones feel like he’s hearing footsteps on every down.
With Jadeveon Clowney putting together a great season opposite Garrett, the line has great potential to impact this game.
