Bengals v. browns
After being disguised as the Grim Reaper last year, Myles Garrett, who had written the names of all the quarterbacks he had sacked in his career, will not hide his game Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.
“My plan is to get out there and play football,” Garrett said.
The defensive end is playing great football even though being slowed down by injuries he suffered in a car accident last month. The star player is trying to keep his focus on salvaging a season that’s going nowhere for the Cleveland Browns (2-5) who have been defeated in their last four games.
Another loss, to a section rival, would dash Cleveland’s playoff hopes.
However, after a strong defensive performance against the Ravens last week, Garrett feels confident going into Monday night’s game.
“I like our chances,” he adds. Our defense has already had some good games against Burrow and the Bengals and I think we know what it takes to make them uncomfortable. Even if he is talented, we have to crush him. »
Cincinnati will be without star receiver Ja’Marr Chase due to a hip injury.
On Saturday, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Chase would not be on the disabled list, saying the team expects him to return within a month.
Burrow can always turn to other great options with receivers Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd as well as running back Joe Mixon.
As for Garrett, he’s had six quarterback sacks this season but still hasn’t regained his bearings since his crash, where he suffered shoulder and bicep injuries. He nevertheless admits that he should have taken more time off. He had only missed one encounter.
