Snap Count Review: How did Browns D-Line handle its 1st test without 3 starters?

We're breaking down who played how much in the Browns' 41-24 victory over the Dolphins.

-- In the Browns' first game without Myles Garrett, no defensive lineman played more than 68 percent of the snaps. Chad Thomas led the way with 43 of a possible 63 snaps while Sheldon Richardson, who lined up at both end and tackle, played 41. Eli Ankou and Devaroe Lawrence both started but played just 35 and 32 snaps, respectively.

-- Bryan Cox, who was acquired just days before Cleveland's Week 11 game against the Steelers, played 32 snaps in his Browns debut. Porter Gustin, who was activated from the practice squad Friday, played 25 snaps in his NFL debut. Gustin picked up a sack in the fourth quarter on a play where Cox also applied plenty of pressure.
