The Chargers ultimately tied the game with a field goal, but the Cowboys won the game with a field goal of their own as time expired in regulation.
Parsons finished the game with 2 total tackles, including that sack. The rookie earned high praise from teammates after the game.
“The dude is a beast,” running back Ezekiel Elliott told reporters. “He can be elite at linebacker. He can be elite at defensive end. I’m glad we got him on our team.”
