Micah Parsons

Micah Parsons was as overpowering as usual as the Dallas Cowboys defeated the New York Giants 28-20 to earn their first Thanksgiving victory in years. With two sacks against the Giants, Dallas’ skilled pass defender has now recorded 12 for the year. With two seasons in a row with at least 12 sacks to begin his career, Parsons has achieved something that, according to the NFL, not even Aaron Donald had done in his early years.

Parsons is only the third player in league history to record at least 12 sacks in each of his first two seasons, according to a tweet from the league’s NFL Research pages. Reggie White, an Eagles and Packers Hall of Famer, and Aldon Smith, another former Dallas Cowboy, were the only other two players to achieve that feat. After his performance on Thanksgiving, Parsons also equaled Smith’s record for the most multi-sack games by any player in his first two seasons.

How dominant Parsons has been over the past 18 months can be seen by comparing his first two seasons to those of some of the best pass rushers in football’s rookie and sophomore seasons.

In his first two seasons, Aaron Donald had sack totals of nine and eleven. The most active NFL player with the most sacks is Von Miller, who has 11.5 and 18.5 in his first two seasons.

If Micah Parsons wants to end the season as the league’s top pass rusher, he still has some work to do. Outside linebacker Matthew Judon of the New England Patriots has 13 sacks to Parsons’ 12 as they head into their respective Thanksgiving games against the Minnesota Vikings.
