Former Boise State and current Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence was named NFC defensive player of the week, coming off of a head-turning three-sack game Monday Sept. 25. Lawrence is the league leader in sacks with 7.5.
His dominance is being noticed, as Lawrence was double-teamed for most of the game against the Arizona Cardinals. In the past, Lawrence has had mostly unproductive and injury plagued years. This year, Lawrence credits his great start to his health.
“Not being healthy the last couple of seasons kind of slowed me down. I feel like I got my speed back,” Lawrence said in a press conference in Dallas Texas.
Head coach Jason Garrett is pleased with Lawrence’s exceptional start.
“(Lawrence) is playing with a relentless spirit, and it’s showing up in his production and that production is contagious,” Garrett said at the press conference.
The offensive lines the Cowboys played against generally have not performed the best. So what exactly can Bronco and Cowboys fans expect to see moving forward? Kevin Brady, from “Inside the Star,” thinks Lawrence’s dominance will show up again this Sunday.
“Lawrence should be able to get after Goff and give the Rams offensive issues,” Brady wrote in his article on “Inside The Star.”
, having to go up against the Rams three-time Pro Bowl left guard Andrew Whitworth gave Lawrence the most problems so far. The Rams O-line only allowed Lawrence to get one sack compared to his multi-sack games in Dallas’ first three games. Lawrence also managed to force a fumble. It appears that a healthy DeMarcus Lawrence isn’t going to be easy for anyone to hold back.
