D'Qwell Jackson A Bright Spot For Browns Defense In Loss To Bengals

Although the Cleveland Browns defense was suspect in the team's 34-27 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, linebacker D'Qwell Jackson was able to have a great game. He registered five tackles, an interception and a career-high three sacks.

Jackson became the first Browns defender to register three sacks since Kenard Lang who had three against the Baltimore Ravens on September 12, 2004. Furthermore, Jackson became the first Browns player since Randy Hilliard in 1991 to have an interception and at least two sacks in the same game.

On the season, Jackson has eight tackles to go with the three sacks. He now sits at two interceptions after two weeks. If the defense has more efforts like this one, Jackson's role is going to become more and more important as the weeks go on.
