DeMarcus Lawrence, Defensive End
Again, another easy one. But an important one. Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is on a record-setting pace this season. As one of the top pass rushers in the league this year, his play against quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will have a big impact on the outcome of this contest.
The Packers’ offensive line has allowed Rodgers to be sacked 15 times through four games. That’s the fourth highest sack total in the NFL. And the Cowboys have the league’s current sack leader, Lawrence, on their roster. The fourth-year pro has 7.5 sacks through his first four games.
Lawrence’s previous career high was 8.0 sacks in a season, which the 25-year old is set to break in Week Five against the Packers this Sunday. Tank has recorded a sack in each of his played games this season. Will the streak continue?
Also in the final year of his rookie contract, Lawrence is positioning himself for a monster payday at the end of the year. And his play through the first four weeks of the season is a major reason why Dallas even has two wins this year. Unless he suddenly cools off, Lawrence is absolutely one to watch from here on out.
