  • Despite not having Olivier Vernon, the Browns had other members of their defensive line step up. Larry Ogunjobi played almost every snap. Chad Thomas, in his first start, registered a sack. But the star of the game, per PFF, was Sheldon Richardson:
  • Myles Garrett is frustrated not to have gotten a sack, but he got to Josh Allen twice on plays that were very close to being fumble (Allen’s arm just barely came forward on them for incomplete passes).

LB Joe Schobert 69 100% 5 tackles (5 combined).
LB Mack Wilson 69 100% 3 tackles, 1 assist (4 combined). 1 QH.
LB Sione Takitaki 11 16% 2 tackles (2 combined)
  • We’re starting to see Mack Wilson flash a little bit more. He still has a long way to go, but it’s nice to see him becoming more of a presence on certain plays, and important to remember he’s a rookie.
  • Fellow rookie Sione Takitaki played 11 snaps and had 2 tackles; if I’m not mistaken, that is his first action on defense this year.

CB Denzel Ward 68 99% 3 tackles, 1 assist (4 combined). 2 passes defended.
CB Greedy Williams 64 93% 2 tackles (2 combined). 1 pass defended.
CB T.J. Carrie 51 74% 4 tackles (4 combined). 1 pass defended.
  • After getting beat early for a pass interference penalty, Denzel Ward had a couple of pass break-ups and fared well.
  • Greedy Williams was targeted a few times, but had a nice pass break-up that was close to being an interception.
  • T.J. Carrie got to be the nickelback again with Jermaine Whitehead cut and Eric Murray out to injury. Carrie was beat badly once by Cole Beasley on an out-and-in route.

S Morgan Burnett 69 100% 7 tackles, 1 assist (8 combined).
S Damarious Randall 69 100% 5 tackles, 2 assists (7 combined). 1 pass defended.
S Juston Burris 11 16% No stats registered.
  • It was good seeing Damarious Randall back in action. Even though he’s not having a banner season, it’s still much more assuring to have him back there than not.
