Micah Parsons, Linebacker, Dallas Cowboys
The NFC East has some quality defensive players who could impress in Week 2.
Micah Parsons definitely qualifies. He began his season with three combined tackles, one interception, and one tackle for loss in Week 1 versus the Giants. He has a chance to continue his good start to in Week 2 versus the New York Jets.
Gang Green's offensive line allowed three sacks versus the Buffalo Bills, and is expected that they will have a difficult task in stopping their next opponent. Dallas tied for third place last year with 54 sacks. Parsons led the club with 13.5 sacks in 17 games.
He and the Cowboys' defense could fluster New York quarterback Zach Wilson often in the upcoming game. Expect Parsons to flex his bnumber
Look for Parsons to create some pressure on the Jets offensive line and on Wilson. His disruption will help the other Cowboys' defensive players limit New York's production on offense to a degree in the passing game.
Will the performance of the Dallas defense be enough for the club to secure a win? Based on what we saw from the Jets in Week 1, this contest could be a defenseive showcase/battle, and the superior unit will lead its team to victory.
Predictions for Parsons - Four combined tackles including one tackle for loss, 1.5 sacks
