Cowboys at Panthers: Week 11 game ball goes to Micah Parsons

The lion was on the prowl on Sunday afternoon.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Carolina Panthers Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys are absolutely rolling. Dallas recorded their seventh win of the season on Sunday afternoon, beating the Carolina Panthers 33-10. The win was a complete team effort and the Cowboys did some great things on both sides of the ball. Sunday marked the sixth time Dallas has scored 30 or more points in a game this season and the fourth time their defense has given up 10 or fewer.

Once again, there were plenty of candidates for this week’s game ball, but one stood above the rest. For the third time this season, the award goes to Micah Parsons. Parsons was a true game-wrecker on Sunday afternoon. The DPOY candidate tied his single-game career-high with 2.5 sacks and was in the backfield all game long.

After recording no tackles or sacks against the Giants in Week 10, the conversation of whether Parsons was starting to slow down as the season progressed was brought to the forefront. Safe to say the All-Pro ended that discussion rather quickly.

On this Thanksgiving week, be thankful that 11 teams passed on Micah Parsons, and be thankful the best defensive player in football is a Dallas Cowboy.
