➤ 30.8% pressure rate (4th), 23% blitz rate (22nd)

Under new defensive coordinator Joe Woods, the Browns have decreased their blitz rate by 15 percentage points (only team over 10%).

Despite blitzing less often, the Browns have their highest pressure rate this season over the last 4 seasons.

#CLEvsPIT | #Browns
The Steelers high blitz rates over the last 3 seasons have been driven by early down blitzes.

Early Down Blitz Rate by Season
➤ 2018: 42% (1st) | 3rd down: 32% (15th)
➤ 2019: 43% (3rd) | 3rd down: 20% (30th)
➤ 2020: 55% (1st) | 3rd down: 27% (22nd)
