Micah Parsons sets Dallas Cowboys record with sack on Thanksgiving Day
Micah Parsons is off to a flying start for his NFL career, and he now holds a record for the Dallas Cowboys.
The rookie linebacker is on a tear, particularly when it comes to rushing the passer. He entered the Thanksgiving Day game vs. the Las Vegas Raiders with 5.5 sacks in his last 3 games, including 2 sacks in a loss to Kansas City Chiefs last weekend.
For the season, Parsons was up to 8 sacks and 18 QB hits, and he added to that total against the Raiders. With a sack in overtime, Parsons now has 9 for the season and the rookie record for sacks in a season by a Dallas player:
