6. DeMarcus Lawrence can still get after it
To all the people who called DeMarcus Lawrence washed because he couldn’t get to the quarterback, how’s this for a response? Three sacks in just 39 snaps for the “washed” defensive end.
Tank Lawrence was in the backfield all night for America’s Team. It was almost a flashback of what he used to be, but this was even better. I don’t remember a game where he dominated even this much. In Week 3, D-Law had seven pressures, five stops, four hurries, and three sacks, on just 31 pass rushing snaps.
Most people recognize the elite run defender No. 90 is, but this was a great redemption game for him. If you don’t remember, Micah Parsons and Lawrence wagered a bet riding on who will have the most sacks this season. It seemed that Parsons was going to cruise to a win on this one, but D-Law closed the gap to a 4-3 score on Monday night.
I would also like to shout out the defensive line in general for the outstanding game they played. Dorance Armstrong had a sack and Chauncey Gholston looked fantastic when he was out there, recording three pressures on eight pass-rushing snaps.
