The Dallas Cowboys are arguably the most polarizing team in all of sports. And while anyone can debate their lack of success of the past 25 years, it’s difficult to argue against their massive popularity.
The Cowboys have a ravenous fanbase which stretches far beyond the metroplex and the state of Texas, but into every city and state the team plays away games in. And Dallas is also very often among the top broadcasted games watched every year in the entire NFL.
So, is it any wonder that NFL jersey sales wouldn’t follow suit? According to the Official NFL Shop via Twitter, one Cowboys’ player dominated jersey sales through the month of October. And it just so happens to be a Dallas defender.
Linebacker Micah Parsons is on pace to have another stellar season in Dallas. And the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year could be adding to his mantel this year with some arguing his case for not only NFL Defensive Player of the Year, but potentially as the NFL’s Most Valuable Player as well. The last time a defensive player earned the league MVP award, it was the Hall of Famer, Lawrence Taylor, back in 1986.
So far this season, Micah Parsons has recorded 8.0 sacks, 36 combined tackles, nine tackles for loss, 14 quarterback hits, two pass deflections, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery for a defensive touchdown through eight games. Parsons’s play has helped the Dallas Cowboys to a 6-2 record and second place in the NFC East division.
