Micah Parsons dominated all NFL pass-rushers in 2022 season opener
Micah Parsons was a force in Week 1 of the NFL regular season.
The Cowboys didn’t look too hot against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Parsons was in a league of his own on defense. The former Penn State standout led all league defenders in pass rush win rate, basically a measure of a pass rusher beating their man to impact the play.
As you can see, Parsons affected the play often in Week 1.

The Cowboys are back in action next week against the Cincinnati Bengals.
