On Sunday Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware sacked Texans quarterback Matt Schaub three times. Today Ware was named NFC defensive player of the week.
It was the sixth three-sack game of Ware’s career, and it’s his fourth defensive player of the week award.
All three of Ware’s sacks came on third down, and the Cowboys say he had three quarterback pressures in addition to his three sacks.
Ware now has 68.5 sacks in 83 career games.
