- Sheldon Richardson had a tackle for a loss and a sack in the red zone at one point of the game, which helped hold Cincinnati to a field goal. Similarly, Bryan Cox had a sack on a 1st-and-goal play from the 2 yard line that helped keep the Bengals to a field goal. The Browns’ defensive line may not have gotten a consistent push, but there were a few timely plays like that.
- Per PFF, “Larry Ogunjobi was a problem for Cincinnati’s offensive line in the run game, consistently defeating blocks and affecting the play, making a number of stops for short gains.” Ogunjobi led the Browns with 9 tackles and had 3 quarterback hits.

|LB||Sione Takitaki||5||7%||1 tackle (1 combined).|
- Joe Schobert made a few solid tackles, and Mack Wilson did a nice job defending a downfield pass for Joe Mixon.

- Teams continue to pick on Greedy Williams, and I’m not seeing much of an improvement.
- Denzel Ward had a pick six fall into his lap as he was dropped back on a 3rd-and-long play. Hopefully that helps him step up his aggressiveness in having a nose for the ball again.

- With Damarious Randall coming back to the starting lineup, Cleveland decided to keep rookie Sheldrick Redwine as the other starting safety over Juston Burris. Redwine responded by being the Browns’ highest-graded defensive player (per PFF) for the second week in a row:
