The Cleveland Browns front four was supposed to apply consistent pressure, but at the BYE week, Myles Garrett is the only lineman creating serious pressure in the backfield.

Jadeveon Clowney had his moments earlier in the season, but more recently, he’s lived up to his billing as staunch defender of the run.

The interior has been really disappointing. Malik McDowell scores a sack every now then, but the 2017 draft pick had never appeared in NFL game until this season. It was wishful thinking when we all thought he was going to dominate on a weekly basis.

He still has promise, though, and he should be better next season.

The other Malik, however, has been a disappointment after signing a $3.75 million contract. He’s started every game, but he’s recorded just 0.5 sacks and has just six quarterback pressures.

PFF grades Jackson with a mark of 47.8, which if you didn’t know, is terrible. Jackson will be a free agent at season’s end.
