Micah Parsons’ stern reminder after Cowboys’ loss to Chiefs should scare the NFL

Cowboys, Micah Parsons, Chiefs

The Dallas Cowboys failed to stave off a rejuvenated Kansas City Chiefs squad on Sunday night, absorbing a 19-9 beating on the road.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who has led the team to the best this season, was held in check by the Chiefs, who played aggressive defense right from the get-go. It was unfamiliar territory for the Cowboys, who are coming off a 43-3 demolition of the Atlanta Falcons.

Rookie linebacker Micah Parsons was the lone bright spot for the Cowboys. The talented youngster forced a fumble and tallied two more sacks, earning praise from Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes. But when asked about his performance after the game, Parsons was far from satisfied (via The Athletic’s Jon Machota).

“I’m just hungry. I think it’s just been glimpses. I don’t think I’ve found my true self yet.”

That’s bad news for the rest of the NFL.

The 22-year-old Parsons, who was selected by the Cowboys at no. 12 overall, has definitely impressed in his rookie campaign. He’s a big reason for the squad’s resurgence this season, holding a 7-3 record to top the NFC East.

Parsons has been a versatile weapon for the Cowboys, leading to debates if he’s a linebacker who gets rushes or a pass-rushing defensive end. It won’t be a total surprise if he racks up individual accolades as he establishes his career.

The embarrassing defeat may just be an aberration for the Cowboys, but for sure, Parsons won’t take it lightly.
