Dallas Cowboys rookie Micah Parsons may have had some rough moments in his NFL regular-season debut on opening night for the league, but he performed much better in his second chance to play in primetime. Parsons and the Dallas Cowboys feasted on the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night, 41-21, and the rookie out of Penn State was all over former Heisman Trophy finalist Jalen Hurts, the starting quarterback for the Eagles.

Parsons had himself a ballgame with constant quarterback pressure s on Hurts and was involved in multiple key defensive moments for the Cowboys. His aggressiveness paid off while playing out of the defensive end position, which Dallas has been utilizing to their advantage the last couple of weeks. It certainly had an impact Monday night against the Eagles.

When Parsons wasn’t getting pressure on Hurts, he still managed to get in the way of a pass by the Eagles first-year starting quarterback.

After the game, Parsons reportedly exchanged his jersey with Eagles veteran offensive lineman Lane Johnson.

Parsons did have to leave the game for some medical attention in the second half of the Cowboys’ blowout victory, but it appears he will be OK moving forward for Dallas.
