Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons showcased his exceptional skills in last Sunday's game against New York, and he's starting to get the recognition he deserves.

The league has named Parsons the NFC defensive player of the week following his remarkable contribution to the Cowboys' commanding 30-10 victory over the New York Jets last Sunday.

Parsons proved to be an absolute force on the field, wreaking havoc with his relentless play. He tallied an impressive 2.0 sacks, three tackles for loss, and four total quarterback hits. In addition, he demonstrated his versatility by deflecting a pass, forcing a fumble, and recovering another fumble.

With an incredible work ethic and determination, Parsons was on the field for an impressive 87 percent of Dallas' defensive snaps, displaying his unwavering dedication to the game.

So far this season, Parsons has already accumulated an impressive stat line, boasting 3.0 sacks, four tackles for loss, and six quarterback hits. After securing the runner-up position in the AP defensive player of the year voting for two consecutive seasons, Parsons appears to be a strong contender for the top spot in 2023.

Looking ahead, the Cowboys will face a tough challenge on the road this weekend as they go up against the Arizona Cardinals. It will be an exciting matchup that will test Parsons' skills and further showcase his impact on the game.
