Micah Parsons Continues To Show He Is A Generational Talent

was a huge factor in the ' big win on Sunday afternoon against the . He finished with two to go along with eight QB pressures and a 22.9% pass-rush win percentage in the week two matchup.

This comes after another two-sack performance against the Buccaneers in week one. Putting Parsons in elite company with , , and as the only Cowboys players to record multiple sacks in the first two games of a season.

With Sunday's performance, Parsons now has 17 career sacks in his first 18 regular season games which is an NFL record.

It is becoming a weekly habit by Parsons to re-write the record books as he not only became the fastest player to 15 sacks just a week ago but is now one of six players ever to record two or more sacks in a game five times in a player's first 20 games.

What Micah has done in under 20 starts is simply incredible. He is well on his way to recording more sacks than anybody in the league's within this time frame. More than T.J. Watt, , and even Lawrence Taylor; despite being drafted as, and playing, for a chunk of last season. With now lining up as a primary rusher, Micah Parsons is going to have 20-plus sacks by the end of the season.

He is off to the best start of a career we have seen from a pass rusher, maybe even the best start for a defensive player period.

Parsons obviously entered the conversation as one of the league's premier pass rushers last season winning honors by unanimous decision with 13 sacks and the best pressure rate of any pass-rusher in the league at 22.4%. Not to mention his 84 total tackles and 20 tackles for a loss.

But he is no longer entering the conversation.

Micah is the conversation when it comes to the best pass-rusher in the NFL. In the same breath as Aaron Donald, T.J. Watt, and Myles Garrett. The days of waiting for teams to figure him out are over as this is simply who he is. A top-three pass rusher in the league, the best player on the Cowboys roster, and the early favorite to win .
