Myles Garrett is one of the NFL’s most dominant pass rushers, yet he is still mostly remembered for trying to bash former Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph’s head with a helmet in 2019.
The 6-foot-4, 272-lb. player’s uncaged rage ranks among NFL history’s most volatile on-field flare-ups, and the Steelers didn’t want history to repeat itself.
Myles Garrett Gives Steelers Players A Wake-Up Call
Sunday’s Cleveland Browns versus Pittsburgh Steelers AFC North faceoff held plenty of stake as both teams sat at 6-3 on the season.
During the game, Myles Garrett crossed paths with Steelers QB Kenny Pickett’s helmet and picked it up, prompting Steelers players to run in and apprehend Garrett. They snatched the helmet from Garrett’s mitts, unwilling to take any chances even if Garrett meant no harm.
Steelers players poked fun at Garrett’s shot at Rudolph, which cost the DE six games of suspension to close out 2019. The 6-foot-4, 272 lb. defensive end threw his hands up. Garrett surrendered, saying he was a changed man since going after Rudolph three years ago.
Cleveland engineered a game-winning drive in an offensively bereft game. The Browns won 13-10.
