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