Myles Garrett On ‘Another Level’ Thanks To Experience & Athleticism

Browns DE Myles Garrett credits new offensive coordinator Jim Schwartz for turning Cleveland into one of the NFL’s best defenses.

The Cleveland Browns rank first in total yards per game allowed and passing yards per game allowed. Myles Garrett, a fundamental part of the unit, believes he’s entering the prime of his career.

In eight games so far, Myles Garrett ranks second in the league in sacks (9.5) and QB hits (18). He ranks 6th in the NFL with a pressure percentage of 19.4% and his 4.8 sack percentage leads the league.

“I think I’m nearing my prime, the peak of my powers,” Garrett said. 

“I think it’s just matching that experience and that wisdom as well as my athletic ability. Both of those being combined, I think that’s really taken my game to another level.

“I’ve got to give credit to my teammates and Jim Schwartz because without those guys and him putting us in position to make plays, none of that’s possible,” Garrett said. “He’s willing to line me up anywhere and, and try out stuff. He knows I’m going to do my thing. He’s like, ‘We’ll get you one on one and you’ll wreak havoc, so go do it.'”

Sunday’s game against the Ravens will be a matchup between two of the best defenses in the NFL. Baltimore ranks first in points allowed per game and second in total yards allowed per game. As well as that, they rank second in passing yards per game, first in sacks per game and first in opposing QB rating.

It will be a tough ask for the Browns, who are less secure on the road. In five home games, they’ve allowed 10.2 PPG. Away, though, they’ve allowed 29.3 PPG in three games.
