On Sunday, the Cleveland Browns scored a late touchdown to squeak past the Indianapolis Colts, 39-38.
The win puts the Browns at 4-2 and just behind the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North.
Quarterback Deshaun Watson and running back Jerome Ford were both lost during the game to injuries.
Colts backup quarterback Gardner Minshew then outplayed Browns backup PJ Walker, but Cleveland did just enough to get by.
One of the heroes of the day was defensive end Myles Garrett who collected two strip sacks and a blocked kick.
Garrett’s two sacks put him at 81 for his career.
That total passes Reggie White for the most sacks in NFL history before a player’s 28th birthday.

Garrett was held without a sack last week against the San Francisco 49ers but made up for it on Sunday.
Near the end of the first half of play, Garrett came from the left side of the Browns’ defensive line and jarred the ball loose from Minshew in the Colts’ end zone.
Cleveland linebacker Tony Fields II pounced on the ball for a touchdown.
Earlier in the second quarter, Garrett went full Superman and leaped over an Indy lineman and blocked Colts kicker Matt Gay’s 60-yard field goal attempt.

Browns cornerback Denzel Ward then scooped up the ball and returned it 19 yards to give Cleveland good field position.
Garrett’s final stats for the afternoon include two sacks, two forced fumbles, one blocked field goal, and six tackles.
Cleveland will travel to western Washington to meet the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday and give Garrett more opportunities to add to his sack record.
