The Cleveland Browns head into a tough matchup against the Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday.
This is a big task for the Browns to show they are ready to take it to the next level.
The Cowboys offense is stacked and Browns superstar pass rusher Myles Garrett knows they have a tough challenge ahead of them.
Garrett actually praised Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott ahead of Sunday’s matchup.
He mentioned that Prescott has been a leader in the locker room and noting the Browns’ defense cannot afford to give up big plays.
“He is a talented player,” Garrettt said, via Jon Machota of The Athletic. “He is worth a lot to that team, and he has proven his worth day in and day out over there. We have to make sure that we do not allow him to make those big plays that he is accustomed to making.”

The stud pass rusher knows that Prescott has the ability to take over a game by himself.
Cleveland could very well be looking at a shootout during Week 4.
How To Stop Prescott?
It won’t be an easy task slowing down the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback on Sunday.
Prescott has already thrown for over 450 yards in each of the last two games.
It’s also worth noting that all three of his touchdown passes went for at least 40 yards or more.
The Browns defense must step it up if they want to remain over the .500 mark heading into next week.
Garrett knows that the key is for Cleveland to get consistent pressure on Prescott.
That being said, Garrett is going to play a huge role in Sunday’s contest.
He has already been able to make an enormous impact through the first three games of the season.
Through three games, Garrett has eight tackles, three sacks, two fumbles forced, and two fumbles recovered.
Surprisingly, two of Garrett’s three sacks came in the victory over the Washington Football Team in Week 3.

Getting pressure on Prescott is going to be the only way the Browns pull off this victory in Dallas.
They can’t give Prescott time in the pocket because the Cowboys have too many weapons.
Cleveland must pressure Prescott and forced him to make mistakes with the ball.
The Dallas offensive line has already given up six sacks this season.
The Browns have a dangerous defensive line that could really do some significant damage here.
Garrett and the rest of the Browns d-line will need to pressure Prescott often, otherwise it could be a long day for Cleveland on Sunday.
