Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on defense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Defensive Line

Pos Player Plays % Stats
Pos Player Plays % Stats
DL Emmanuel Ogbah 54 90% 3 tackles (3 combined). 1 QH.
DL Myles Garrett 50 83% 1 assist (1 combined). 2 QH, 1 pass defended.
DL Larry Ogunjobi 48 80% 3 tackles, 1 assist (4 combined). 0.5 sack, 1 QH.
DL Trevon Coley 38 63% 2 tackles (2 combined). 1 TFL.
DL Chris Smith 14 23% No stats registered.
DL Brian Price 13 22% 1 tackle, 1 assist (2 combined).
DL Anthony Zettel 2 3% No stats registered.
  • It may have seemed like a quiet day for Myles Garrett, but he was the Browns’ highest-graded defender on the day (74.1). Emmanuel Ogbah led the defensive line in snaps this week.
  • Larry Ogunjobi collected half of a sack.

Linebacker

LB Christian Kirksey 59 98% 1 assist (1 combined). 1 interception, 2 passes defended.
LB Jamie Collins 54 90% 5 tackles, 1 assist (6 combined). 1 TFL.
LB Joe Schobert 33 55% 2 tackles, 1 assist (3 combined). 0.5 sack, 1 QH, 1 pass defended.
LB Genard Avery 23 38% No stats registered.
LB James Burgess 17 28% 1 tackle (1 combined).
  • I know there are a lot of differences with this, but I still found it ironic how Joe Schobert’s snap streak came to an end in Week 6 due to an injury at home. It was a Week 7 home game last year that ended Joe Thomas’ streak, for which he was honored on Sunday. The number of consecutive snaps is far different, but both players were from Wisconsin and both guys led the team in snaps.
  • It was a good day in pass coverage for Schobert (while he was in there) and Christian Kirksey (who had an interception). Per PFF, “the two highest coverage grades on the day belonged to Christian Kirksey (85.0) and Joe Schobert (80.0), as they combined to allow no catches on three targets and each recorded a pass break-up.”

Cornerback

CB Denzel Ward 60 100% 3 tackles (3 combined).
CB E.J. Gaines 53 88% 2 tackles (2 combined). 1 TFL.
CB T.J. Carrie 28 47% 2 tackles (2 combined). 1 TFL.
  • This was an uneventful day for the Browns’ cornerbacks. Denzel Ward continues to alternate solid and quiet coverage days. Briean Boddy-Calhoun continues to get no snaps at cornerback, even though I’d love to see Gregg Williams go back to him in place of T.J. Carrie.

Safety

S Damarious Randall 60 100% 8 tackles (8 combined).
S Jabrill Peppers 33 55% 3 tackles, 1 assist (4 combined).
S Derrick Kindred 21 35% 1 tackle, 1 assist (2 combined).
  • I guess I can compliment Jabrill Peppers for some of his punt returns, but we’re here to talk about defense. Peppers out-snapped Derrick Kindred, similar to last week.
  • Damarious Randall was in position for a key interception, but let the receiver wrestle the ball away from him. Randall has had 5 really good games prior to this one, so I’m not going to get discouraged about him.
