Not only did the Cowboys earn their first win of the season this past Sunday in Houston, but outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware was rewarded for his efforts by being named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.
Ware scored three sacks in the game as he punished Texans quarterback Matt Schaub throughout the day. It was the fifth time in Ware’s career that he had a three sack game.
Here are some other stats that show Ware’s success — courtesy of ESPNDallas.com:
Ware is now tied with Randy White for the third-most multi-sack games in Cowboys history with 14.
Greg Ellis and Jim Jeffcoat share the Cowboys’ mark for the most multi-sack games in a career with 19.
Ware has 15 tackles and four sacks on the season.
