Pos Player Plays % Stats
DL Sheldon Richardson 65 87% 5 tackles, 2 assists (7 combined). 1 sack, 2 TFL, 1 QH.
DL Larry Ogunjobi 63 84% 4 tackles, 5 assists (9 combined). 0.5 sack, 3 QH.

DL Eli Ankou 18 24% 1 tackle (1 combined).
DL Brandin Bryant 5 7% 1 assist (1 combined).
  • 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.

CB Denzel Ward 75 100% 4 tackles, 1 assist (5 combined). 1 INT, 2 passes defended, 1 TD.
CB Greedy Williams 74 99% 4 tackles (4 combined).
CB T.J. Carrie 59 79% 4 tackles, 2 assists (6 combined). 1 FF.
  • 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.
