With the Browns already laying claim to a 17-3 lead with 57 seconds remaining in the second quarter, Ravens backup quarterback Tyler Huntley dropped back on a second-and-10 from Baltimore's own 20-yard line. But before Huntley could attempt his pass, the ball was ripped from his hand by Garrett, who proceeded to return the fumble to the end zone for a touchdown.

Garrett's strip-sack marked his 15th sack of the season, with the No. 1 pick of the 2017 NFL Draft surpassing Reggie Camp's 14 sacks in the 1984 campaign. Now in his fifth season in Cleveland, Garrett now lays claim to the first, third and fifth-highest single-season sack totals in Browns history.

With four and a half games still remaining in Cleveland's 2021 season, Garrett might not be done making history just yet. With 57.5 career sacks to his credit, the Texas A&M product is just four sacks behind linebacker Clay Matthews Jr. for the Browns' all-time record.

Laying claim to a 6-6 record with five games remaining in the regular season, Cleveland desperately needs a win against 8-4 Baltimore in order to keep pace in the AFC playoff picture. For all the latest from the Browns' Week 14 matchup with the Ravens, follow our live blog.
