2. Micah Parsons forces two fumbles

For the past three years, Micah Parsons has been the best defender on the Dallas Cowboys roster. He has 31.5 sacks in 39 career games and has established himself as one of the best pass rushers in the game.

Last week, he was held in check for much of the game with former Dallas offensive coordinator Kellen Moore trying to focus on him throughout the night. Then when it mattered most, he broke through the line at the end of the game and recorded a clutch sack on Justin Herbert. That helped seal the win as the Cowboys went into the bye week on a high note.

Looking ahead to this game, Parsons and the rest of the Dallas front seven are ready to get after Matthew Stafford, who isn’t the most mobile quarterback. In six games, he’s been sacked 18 times and that number should grow on Sunday.

What’s ironic, however, is the fact that Stafford has no fumbles so far in 2023. That’s not the norm since he’s fumbled 79 times in 198 games in his career. That means he’s surely due and Parsons is a prime candidate to force the ball out. This bold prediction is that Parsons makes his presence felt with two forced fumbles on the day.
