  • DL: This was a rare instance where Myles Garrett didn’t even touch the stat sheet. Even though he was able to play most of the game and still drew his share of double teams, you have to wonder how much that shoulder injury is limiting his usual All-Pro nature. The rest of the defensive line wasn’t able to get to Matthew Stafford all game either, with no sacks and a total of two quarterback hits.
  • LB: With the return of Anthony Walker to the lineup, he didn’t play a ton of snaps, but was the highest-graded player on defense (83.9). Sione Takitaki was the one blamed for allowing the 70-yard touchdown pass to Puka Nucua, but on the same note, something isn’t ideal there if a linebacker is the one covering a receiver that far downfield (it was a perfect throw, by the way).
  • CB: The Browns didn’t have bad games from Greg Newsome and M.J. Emerson this week, but it seemed like the Rams wisely targeted the void left by Denzel Ward being out.
  • S: It was a pretty quiet day for Browns safeties Juan Thornhill and Grant Delpit. I have to admit that I was irked seeing John Johnson III float across the field for the interception against Flacco, only to see Thornhill on the other end give up a big pass play.
