Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.
Ware was at his personal best last Sunday and collected three sacks in a big win over the Houston Texans. He also led the team with three tackles for a loss and three pressures to go with his eight tackles. He was an unstoppable force and practically terrorized Texans quarterback Matt Schaub all day long.
For Ware, this is the fourth time he has been named Defensive Player of the Week in his career, and you can expect him to garner many more such honors before it’s all said and done.
Ware now has 68.5 career sacks, and nearly half of them have come on third down, which just shows you how clutch Ware can be when the pressure is on.
Sunday was the fifth time in Ware’s career that he had a three sack game and he is now tied with Randy White for the third-most multi-sack games in Cowboys history with 14. The record of 19 multi-sack games is currently held by Greg Ellis and Jim Jeffcoat.
