Micah Parsons breaks rookie record that was held by Nick Bosa
Micah Parsons is having a record-setting start to the season for the Dallas Cowboys.
The former Penn State linebacker has 11 QB pressures through the first two games of the season — the most by a rookie through two weeks since 2006. The previous record was held by another former B1G standout, Nick Bosa, who had 9 through two games in 2019.

Parsons was a consensus NCAA All-American and racked up a multitude of honors in 2019 as a sophomore at Penn State, but forewent his last two years of eligibility to focus on the 2021 NFL Draft. Dallas picked him 12th overall and has made his presence felt so far this season on the Cowboys’ revamped defense. He ranks 4th on the roster with 9 tackles and is one of two Cowboys with a sack.
Parsons will get primetime exposure this week when Dallas takes on the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football.
