Aggies In The NFL: Myles Garrett's Record Day Ruins Justin Fields' Debut

Myles Garrett lead the way for successful Aggies in Week 3 of the NFL.

Texas A&M football is a premier program seeking out premier players. Most of those premier players make it to the 'next level' and continue their football careers in the NFL, the top of the football career mountain.

There are currently 34 former Aggies either on active rosters in the NFL or on practice squads this year, and Cleveland Browns' defensive end had the best showing of them all on Sunday, ruining the NFL debut of Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields. 

Garrett sacked Fields 4.5 times, breaking the Browns' single-game sack record, had seven tackles, six solo, four tackles for loss, and six quarterback hits in the 26-6 win.
