The Dallas Cowboys‘ defense stole the show in Week 1 as they shut out the New York Giants.
The Cowboys suffocated the Giants’ offense and allowed the team to take home a dominant 40-0 victory.
Micah Parsons was at the heart of the Dallas effort as he routinely got pressure on Daniel Jones and opened up rushing lanes for his teammates.
Parsons was an impact player as soon as he made it to the NFL and now he’s making a case as the best defensive player in the league.
With his combination of size, physicality, and IQ, Parsons is the perfect pass rusher for any defensive unit.
Mike McCarthy has been preparing Parsons for the extra blocking attention he’ll receive by double and triple-teaming him and he said that he’s been taking things in stride via Clarence Hill Jr. of Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
“I think he’s handled it very well,” McCarthy said. “I think he clearly understands the impact he makes for our defense, the opportunities he creates for others, he’s very much in tune with that. Frankly, just to make him feel at home, we triple-teamed him today on the last play of the game segment. It’s something he’s going to be dealing with the rest of his career.”

There isn’t an offensive lineman in the league that can handle Parsons one-on-one, so McCarthy is taking the smart approach by giving him more realistic looks in practice.
Dallas has the New York Jets on tap for Week 2 and Parsons should be ready to handle the extra attention up front.
