As we head toward Monday night’s exciting matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns, the talk of the town this week for Browns fans has been the amazing play of the defense. 

Of course, one of the stars of the Browns defense is Myles Garrett.  

Garrett, who played college football at Texas A&M, was the first pick of the NFL draft for the Cleveland Browns in 2017.

Since joining the Browns in 2017, Garrett has had a very good career making the Pro Bowl four times.

Now in his seventh season with the Browns, Garrett is looked upon as one of the main leaders of the defense. 

In last week’s first game of the season against the Bengals, Garrett had a very good game as he helped lead the Browns defense to a dominating performance. 


Garrett and the defense held Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals offense to just three points for the game. Statistically for the game against the Bengals, Garrett had two tackles and one sack in the Browns victory. 

Garrett also had 3 quarterback knockdowns (QBKD). This is an important metric since it shows the type of pressure achieved by the Browns pass rush. In addition to having three knockdowns, Garrett also had 4 quarterback hurries.  

A quarterback hurry is recorded when a defensive player is responsible for rushing the quarterback out of the pocket or when the defensive pressure leads the quarterback to throwing earlier than they wanted to. 

So obviously, Garrett had a great first game of the season.

But what was front and center in Garrett’s press conference with the media this weekend was Garrett’s crossover dribble move that he performed before a snap early in the first quarter of last week’s game against the Bengals.


Garrett’s Crossover Dribble Move


Garrett explained that his crossover dribble move was a fun move and represented the energy and fun that the defense is playing with.


He said that he has done the crossover dribble move in practice for many years, but this was the first time he used the move in an NFL game.

“I’ve done it for years in practice,” said Garrett. “I’ve just never brought it out. I was like this year, I’m just going to have fun and we’re just going to bust out everything I’m doing in practice.”

Garrett was asked if he would add another fun move for the Monday night game against the Steelers.

Garrett was noncommittal on whether he would have a fun new move for fans to view on Monday night.

“I might bring something new out,” said Garrett. “I might save it for the Bengals.”

So tune in on Monday night at 8:15pm to see if Myles Garrett performs a fun new move on the defensive line and whether or not the Cleveland Browns can win a regular season game in Pittsburgh for the first time in twenty years.
