Micah Parsons joins two other NFL players in the running for the top defensive honor in the NFL.
There are only three games left in the NFL season, the two conference championship games and the Super Bowl. That the Dallas Cowboys are not going to be playing in them is a reality that many of us are still trying to process.
For fans of teams currently still not playing, other things start to occupy the mind. Soon enough we will find out who will be a member of this year’s Pro Football Hall of Fame Class (rooting for DeMarcus Ware and Darren Woodson as well as Chuck Howley) and we will finally know who won all of this season’s awards across the league.
When it comes to things like MVP, Offensive Player of the Year, Coach of the Year, etc., the Cowboys have not really had a name in the mix for most of the season. There is an argument to be made for Tyler Smith at Offensive Rookie of the Year, but if Zack Martin didn’t win it in 2014 then no offensive lineman is ever going to.
