Cowboys defensive end Demarcus Lawrence saw cornerback Trevon Diggs make his 11th interception of the year and joined the party. Lawrence read Taylor Heinicke perfectly and intercepted a quick pass. Following the catch, Lawrence did his offensive impression and rumbled down the field and through Washington players for a touchdown.
He became the 17th different Cowboys player to score a touchdown this season on the club’s sixth defensive score of the year.
Lawrence spent a large majority of the season on injured reserve after a broken foot early in the year but he’s wasted no time getting back to form. The pick-six is just another play on his impressive reel since returning to the field for Dan Quinn.
Dallas wasted no time dominating the Football Team at home after failing to bury them on the road. It’s a 21-0 lead for the NFC East champions in the first quarter and it’s panic early for Washington.
