Myles Garrett On Track To Return For Biggest Browns Game Of Year

The Cleveland Browns are 8-3, and it appears as if they will have their top defensive player back for a massive matchup with the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

According to Browns coach Kevin Stefanski, defensive end Myles Garrett should be cleared to return from the COVID-19 list on Wednesday. Garrett has missed each of the last two games.

The Browns won both, but didn’t get much pressure on the quarterback in either game. At least, not the kind they’re accustomed to seeing with Garrett on the line.

“The guys get a big boost when they see No. 95 out there,” Stefanski told reporters.

That’s good, because they’re going to need it.

While the Browns have won eight of 11, they haven’t always looked good doing it. They beat the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars by just two points (27-25) on Sunday. It was the first start for Jaguars quarterback Mike Glennon since 2017. A more polished QB may have led to an upset.

That’s how bad the Browns’ defense has been.

The Titans are also 8-3 and sit in first place in the AFC South. They have looked unbeatable at times, and the Browns have looked awful against good teams. The Browns were blasted by both the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

So far, this will be the game of the year for the Browns, and they will be glad to have with them defensive star Myles Garrett, who always makes a difference.
