Browns Defense Continues Dominating in Win over Titans
Stopping Derrick Henry: A Key Priority
The Browns knew that stopping the run and limiting Derrick Henry would be crucial in their matchup against the Titans. In the first two weeks of the season, Henry had rushed for 143 yards on 40 carries. However, the Browns were able to effectively contain him, allowing him only 20 rushing yards on 11 carries, with an average of 1.8 yards per carry.
Applying Pressure on Ryan Tannehill
Along with stopping the run, the Browns defense also focused on pressuring Titans’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill. They were successful in sacking Tannehill five times during the game. Myles Garrett stood out with 3.5 sacks, leading the defensive charge and disrupting the Titans’ passing game.
Consistency and Potential
The Browns’ defensive performances have been consistent and have showcased their potential as a dominant unit. They have taken pride in their ability to stop the run and apply pressure on opposing quarterbacks. However, they are aware that they need to continue proving themselves and maintaining their high level of play week after week.
Myles Garrett emphasized the importance of preparation, hard work, and taking care of their bodies to sustain their success on the field. He believes that the defense has shown glimpses of their potential, but they need to remain consistent and keep everyone healthy to continue their dominating performances.
