4 biggest causes for concern for Steelers vs. Browns Week 6
Even before the year began Myles Garrett would have likely made a list like this. The former first overall pick has always found a way to beat Alejandro Villanueva. Garrett has always found a way to get sacks and pressures regularly against the Steelers. That, on top of the on the field incident that occurred last year when Garret swung a helmet onto the exposed head of Mason Rudolph, should lead to a high degree of intensity in this matchup.
Then, Garrett decided to begin the year as a dominant force. While he has always been a good pass rusher, he has really turned it on this year and has been a major disruption for the opposing offenses. While Ben Roethlisberger has stayed mostly upright this year, he will certainly see more pressure than he typically does in a game. This makes his job harder and increases the odds of turnovers, something the Steelers may not be able to afford.
This game seems sure to be competitive. Mix that in with what could be a long day for Roethlisberger due to constant pressure from Garrett could lead to his worst performance of the season. While completely stopping Garrett isn’t likely, doing their best to limit his impact will be key in securing a victory this Sunday.
