BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett stated Friday that he has gotten over the past year’s episode contrary to the Steelers where he ripped off the helmet Mason Rudolph and slugged the Pittsburgh quarterback from the mind with it.
Garrett, who obtained a season-ending suspension to the episode, said he is anticipating a fresh match for Sunday’s rematch at Pittsburgh.
“We will see when we perform,” Garrett explained. “However, their thoughts coach [Mike Tomlin] said they are past it. We are beyond it as a staff. We are all set to head out there and play basketball.”
Garrett missed the last six matches of this year, was fined $45,623, and dropped approximately $1.2 million in wages for the episode, which came in the closing moments of Cleveland’s 21-7 victory on Nov. 14.
On Tuesday, Tomlin stated last year’s episode would not have some effect on Sunday’s match and that his group was”not searching for this low-hanging fruit that reality TV narrative”
Garrett explained he’ll be focused on enjoying”inside the whistle.”
“[We will not ] worry about what they are doing to frustrate or knock us off our game,” Garrett explained. “But I believe that they’re likely to play with a fresh, honest game, and we are likely to do the same.”
Garrett said he does not expect a warm welcome by the 6,000 fans who will be permitted within Heinz Field on Sunday.
“I mean, we are the Browns,” Garrett explained. “I hope to get booed.”
Cleveland hasn’t won in Pittsburgh within 17 decades.
“We now get there,” Garrett explained,”[and] most people would give us respect and watch us as a fictitious team throughout the league.”
