Micah Parsons reveals his big goal for 2022

Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker Micah Parsons has set his eyes on breaking the NFL sack record in 2022. Parsons enjoyed a strong rookie season as he finished with 13 sacks and won the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award.

In 2022, Parsons would like to get to at least 15 sacks. However, 15 is the bare minimum as Parsons' primary goal is to get to 23 sacks. "Yeah, 15's like the minimum. 15's what I wanna hit. But definitely 23 is that goal, to break the record," Parsons told CBS Sports.

Parsons was a nightmare for NFL offenses in his rookie season and he was a strong candidate for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. "I just take the blessings that God gave me. I don't feel like I need to reach anyone's expectations but my own.

If I can live with it, I can deal with it. I'm gonna just go out there and play my game. I don't wanna go out there and chase no one's story, I just gotta do my thing, and that's what got me here and that's what I'm gonna keep doing," Parsons explained.

Parsons does not care about the doubters

The Cowboys have been receiving the least bets to win their decision. Last season, the Cowboys won the NFC East with a 12-5 record - they had three more wins than the second-ranked Philadelphia Eagle.s "I don't care, because we were overlooked last year.

And that just comes with the game. We're just gonna focus on the final 52, 53 that's on the Dallas Cowboys in that room and get better every week. We just gotta control how to get better every week, and hope that you lose your money," Parsons said.

When asked which division quarterback is the easiest to sack, Parsons couldn't give a clear answer. "I don't think none of them's too easy. It's really hard. I mean, (Carson) Wentz is back in the division and hasn't been there.

I never touched Daniel Jones, either. Never touched Daniel Jones; I think he got hurt our game and he didn't even play at all after that. And then Wentz, I never played him. We touched (Jalen) Hurts a little bit, but I had COVID the last game.

These guys are really new to me, to be honest," Parsons said. After the Cowboys' season ended, Parsons said he was determined to win the Super Bowl in his rookie year. Now, Parsons has gotten back to work and he is hoping to lead the Cowboys to a Super Bowl victory in 2022.
