2. Cleveland Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah
The second-round pick is really coming on lately, just in time for the stretch run.
Most notably, the Browns drafted Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah to be the Lamar Jackson stopper, and that’s exactly what he did for the second consecutive game.
In the first match up, JOK limited Jackson’s production. In the rematch, Jackson delivered the hit that left the former MVP injured. Would’ve liked to have seen Jackson come back, because nothing is sweeter than beating the best, but with a quarterback like Jackson, you’ve got to hit him as much as humanly possible.
Some are saying the hit was “dirty.” I don’t see it. JOK finished the hit by taking Jackson down. Mac Jones on the other hand, went full-blown WWE (Twitter link) and twisted the ankle of the Panthers’ Brian Burns.
JOK also blitzed on the Ravens’ final offensive play, forcing quarterback Tyler Huntley to get rid of the ball a tad earlier than he probably wanted to.
Owusu-Koramoah finished five tackles, which included an average depth of tackle of 4.0 yards, according to Pro Football Focus.
