Myles Garrett of Browns gets drug test after Vikings win: “I’m leaving sleeveless for a game and they hit me”

The Cleveland Browns are off to a 3-1 start and a big reason for that is their defense.

Led by Myles Garrett, the Browns’ defense limited the Minnesota Vikings to a single touchdown in a 14-7 victory. Garrett has racked up five sacks in the last two games and is the favorite to win Defensive Player of the Year honors.
