DeMarcus Ware is defensive player of the week

DeMarcus Ware was a monster against the Houston Texans and got three sacks and eight tackles, which made him the NFC's player of the week.

This is Ware's fourth time that he has won this award. He also tied his career high in sacks in a game, which he has done five other times in his incredible career. 

Ware also tied for second on the all-time Cowboys' list for multi-sack games. Greg Ellis and Jim Jeffcoat lead with 19 and Ware is tied with Randy White with 14. He now has 68.5 career sacks and 29 of them have come on third downs, including each of his sacks against the Texans.
