Myles Garrett became the fastest player to reach 40 career sacks in Cleveland Browns' history as the team defeated the Houston Texans.

Garrett recorded a half-sack on Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and it bumped him up to 40 sacks even for his career Sunday. The ferocious defensive end had six total tackles and two tackles for a loss in the game.

Garrett, for the time being, also had the sacks lead with the half-sack. He moved to 9.5 sacks on the season, which is a little more than Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald. Both players are in line for NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
