Myles Garrett and the Cleveland Browns defense were exceptional in Week 3, making Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears look dismal. After an insane 4.5-sack performance, Garrett is easily making his case to win his first Defensive Player of the Year award.
Garrett kicked off the year with the second-best odds to win DPOY on FanDuel Sportsbook (+600), trailing only fellow pass-rusher Aaron Donald (+500). Now, the two-time Pro Bowler is the clear favorite, leading all other defenders with +350 odds.
Through three games, Garrett has recorded 5.5 sacks and is already on pace (again) to shatter the NFL's single season sack record. This pace would equate to about 31.0 sacks, easily surpassing the record held by Michael Strahan, who racked up 22.5 in 2001.
Thanks to this exceptional defensive performance new single-game franchise record from Garrett, the Browns moved to 2-1 on the year and rank with the sixth-best odds (+1300) to win Super Bowl 56. Not only has Garrett racked up 5.5 sacks, he's also put up 14 combined tackles, 9 quarterback hits and 5 tackles for loss.
