Myles Garrett is off to his best start in his early career.
He has been the driving force of this Browns defense and will once again look to anchor this team this weekend.
The man he will be chasing, Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson, understands what he’s in for.
This is a big game for the Browns as they are beginning their playoff push.
Both the Miami Dolphins and Las Vegas Raiders have shocked some people with their impressive seasons, so every game for the Browns matters down the stretch.
Watson has nothing but respect for Myles Garrett as he was asked him about this week.
“He Got Paid What He Deserved”
Earlier in the offseason, the Cleveland Browns locked up their stud defensive end.

He has proved Cleveland right thus far as he is in early contention for defensive player of the year.
Deshaun Watson is another player who got a pay day in the offseason.
He was asked about Garrett’s contract and had high praise for him.
"He's a beast. He got paid what he deserved…He's a special talent."-Deshaun Watson on the Browns' Myles Garrett.

He knows this weekend that Garrett will be coming for him all game long.
The Texans have had a disappointing year thus far.
Earlier in the year, they fired head coach Bill O’Brien, who made some questionable moves in the offseason.
Most notably, getting rid of star wideout, DeAndre Hopkins.
Hopkins helped ease the pressure off Watson as Houston’s offensive line has been struggling for years.
Garrett will be salivating this weekend as he faces one of the weaker offensive lines in the league.
Myles Garrett Should Be Healthy For Sunday
The last time we saw the Cleveland Browns take the field was in Week 8, against the Las Vegas Raiders.
While they lost 16-6, the worst part of the day was that Garrett suffered an apparent knee injury.

It appears that Garrett will be ready for this weekend as he returned to practice earlier in the week.
With Cleveland on the bye, Garrett was granted extra time to recover.
The $125 million man will be looking to wreak havoc as he has been doing all year long.

The Browns secondary is considered the weakness of this team.
But, having a guy like Garrett allows the secondary problems to be masked as he has been fantastic at applying pressure.
With a poor secondary, the key to staying in games is creating turnovers.
This weekend, the Browns will look to do exactly that as their offense looked porous against the Raiders in Week 8.
With Odell Beckham Jr. out for the year, it is vitally important for this defense to create extra opportunities for this offense.
Garrett will certainly be facing a large amount of double teams this weekend.
But, that hasn’t held him back in the past and I do not think Browns fan expect that to hold him back this weekend.
