Cowboys’ DeMarcus Lawrence Seemingly Vows To Stop Vikings RB Dalvin Cook
Let the games begin.
Fresh off an absolute rout of the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys are really feeling themselves as they get set for a Sunday Night Football home showdown with the Minnesota Vikings.
After limiting Giants superstar running back Saquon Barkley to just 28 yards rushing on 14 attempts, the Cowboys defense now have their sights set on containing Minnesota’s Dalvin Cook, who currently leads the NFL with 894 yards and nine touchdowns on 177 carries.
It’s definitely a tall and tough task, but nothing that puts fear in the eyes of DeMarcus Lawrence.
The $105 million pass-rusher had something to say when asked about Dalvin by Dak Prescott.
“Not this week,” Lawrence strongly stated when quarterback Dak Prescott asked if Cook was the top rusher in the league.
Sunday’s battle could easily become a defensive struggle as it pits the league’s third-best rushing offense against the 11th-best run defense.
The Cowboys haven’t allowed a rusher to gain over 100 yards since Week 5 when Packers RB Aaron Jones racked up 107 yards.
