5 Cowboys the Philadelphia Eagles must account for on offense

Jayron Kearse, safety

Without looking, ask yourselves a question. Who leads the Dallas Cowboys in tackles? If you guessed safety Jayron Kearse, the nephew of former Eagle Jevon Kearse, was the co-owner of that distinction, give yourself a gold star. Through two games, Jayron has 16 stops on his tally and has shown no signs of slowing down.

Tarell Basham, defensive end

Demarcus Lawrence is injured. Randy Gregory, Dorance Armstrong, and Carlos Watkins have all dealt with recent injuries. Dare we say the pass rush rests on how much havoc Tarell Basham can create?

Micah Parsons, linebacker

The rookie, Micah Parsons, has been as good as advertised. Expect to see him all over the field on Monday night.

light. Trending. Top takeaways from Week 2’s loss

Anthony Brown, cornerback

Trevon Diggs gets a lot of attention in Dallas’ secondary and rightfully so. Anthony Brown has actually bested him in total number of tackles. Then again, that could be because Brown is who guys are throwing at. He’s tied for the team lead in tackles with 16.

Leighton Vander Esch, linebacker

Always someone that opposing offensive coordinators want to game plan for, Leighton Vander Esch has nine tackles on his 2021 total. Expect him to land on the stat sheet in Week 3.
