Micah Parsons is not fair.
It’s too early to bring up the Dallas Cowboys’ second-year LB alongside the greatest defensive player of all time, but he seems like he is well on his way to being in that conversation. The only thing that would slow him down are injuries.
The Dallas Cowboys pass rusher already has 15 pass rush wins this season, which is the most in the league by a wide margin.
To make that stat even more insane, there are seven teams with 15 or fewer pass rush wins through the first two weeks.
Parsons, the reigning defensive rookie of the year, is now the favorite to win the NFL defensive player of the year award, according to BetMGM.
In Sunday’s 20-17 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, Parsons was credited with 10 of the Cowboys’ 15 pressures.
Parsons has four sacks in two games. The Cowboys have a 17-game season. That would average out to 34 sacks, which would be an NFL record. It would completely obliterate the mark shared by Hall of Famer Michael Strahan and T.J. Watt at 22.5.
In his second season, Parsons might just be getting started.
