Cowboys CB DaRon Bland gets his third pick-six of the 2023 NFL season

Dallas Cowboys defensive back DaRon Bland, a second-year fifth-round pick from Fresno State, was our seventh-ranked slot defender for the 2022 season as a rookie. But as it turns out, Mr. Bland is pretty good on the outside, as well.

With 43 seconds left in the first quarter of Sunday’s Cowboys-Los Angeles Rams game, Bland took this Matthew Stafford target to Cooper Kupp back for a 30-yard touchdown.

It’s Bland’s third pick-six of the season, putting him in some rare company. His first pick-six of the season came in Week 1 against the New York Giants, when he got hold of a ball that was tipped in the air from Daniel Jones to Saquon Barkley after cornerback Trevin Diggs lowered the boom.

Then, in Week 4 against the New England Patriots, Bland took this Mac Jones pass to Kendrick Bourne to the house.

If Bland keeps this up, he’ll be a part of pro football history.
