It didn’t take long for the Cleveland Browns to get to Dak Prescott and all via the right side of the offensive line. Terrance Steele was overmatched quickly by Browns defensive end Myles Garrett which lead to Mike McCarthy’s decision to remove him from the game.

Garrett was able to collect two early sacks by beating Steele in one-on-one combat. The second resulted in a strip sack of Prescott in Cowboys territory. Cleveland recovered the loose ball and turned the score into points, breaking a 14-14 tie on Baker Mayfield’s second touchdown pass of the first half. On the next drive, Brandon Knight replaced Steele.

Knight had started the last two weeks at left tackle with Tyron Smith out and most fans were expecting Knight to get the nod at right tackle this week but McCarthy decided to give Steele another chance coming back from a stomach sickness last week.

Expect Myles Garrett to have a little bit more competition at the right side of the Cowboys offensive line.
