DE Myles Garrett (12.10.21)

On if he and DE Jadeveon Clowney have more responsibility when looking to contain the Ravens offense compared to other teams:

“It is really on us up front. We have to cancel out (Ravens QB) Lamar’s (Jackson) scramble game, extending plays and getting out of the pocket. That is the challenge we face any time we go against a dynamic quarterback, especially someone like him. It is not just as ends; it is us as rushers and us having a good rush plan.”


On why he and the Browns defense were more effective against Jackson last game than in previous matchups:

“I am not sure. We were able to get some pressure on him and get him moving but not going up field. We prevented him from doing exactly what he wants and being comfortable. I think that was the toughest thing for him. Not always having his go-to in No. 89 (Ravens TE Mark Andrews), who is a hell of a player. Trying to put pressure on him and trying to take away that first read, I think it gave him a little trouble.”


On how he spent his bye week how he benefited from it:

“I went to a doctor in Arizona. Laid down in the sun because it felt nice. I have not seen it in a while. I just tried to get some rest and some recovery. Get my mind off of football for a little bit. Then when we get back, you have to turn it on and we have to take the next step as a team and as an individual.”


On his sense of the team after the bye week:

“Sense of the team? I feel like we are ready.”


On the difference of having LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah on the field when facing a player like Jackson:

“He plays hard all of the time. Him playing injured with the high ankle, and he is faster than most people give him credit for. If you turn on the tape, he is running down Lamar left and right all of the way across the field. He has that kind of talent, especially rushing the passer, as well. I think he is going to be a very skilled player for however long he is here.”
