Even as the Cleveland Browns currently sit in third place in the AFC North standings with a 5-8 record, Myles Garrett has no plans to throw in the towel on the season.

The Browns entered Week 14 with a golden opportunity to string together a three-game winning streak for the first time this year, but in the end, the Cincinnati Bengals had the last laugh with a 23-10 home win. The Bengals tallied 363 total yards on the day, and they scored touchdowns on two out of their three trips to the red zone.

As it stands, the Browns hold the No. 12 seed in the AFC. With Cleveland's playoff hopes all but gone, Garrett is at the least looking to play the role of spoiler.

“I don't know what our chances are,” Garrett said during his postgame press conference. “I don't know what the percentage is. I just know that next week, we have to go punch somebody in the mouth, and if our chances are zero, we got to knock down somebody else's chances.

“At the end of the day, I'm not giving up, and this team's not giving up. And regardless of where we stand, it's all about pride, it's all about desire.”

The Browns have maintained a conservative stance with Garrett ever since he came away from a one-car crash with shoulder sprain, biceps strain, and minor laceration injuries in September. The three-time Pro Bowler has been a regular in the Browns’ injury reports over the past months. He reaggravated his left shoulder injury during the team's Week 11 home win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he went on to play in the following week against the Houston Texans.

Garrett missed practice on Wednesday, although he was a full participant in the team’s practices on Thursday and Friday.

When asked on Sunday about whether he would consider calling it a season to rest his nagging shoulder ailment, Garrett shut down the idea of doing just that.

“Absolutely not,” Garrett said. “As long as I can play, I'm gonna play.”

The Browns will now have a home matchup coming up against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15.
