DeMarcus Lawrence praises Cowboys’ explosive defense: ‘We’re the best f—ing defense in the league’
The Dallas Cowboys have established themselves as a defensive powerhouse this season, and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence didn’t mince words when describing just how good he believes their defense is.
“We’re the best f—ing defense in the league, point-blank, period,” Lawrence told reporters after Dallas’ 22-10 win over the reigning Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

“Going out each and every week and setting that tone, being able to instill fear into the other offense, going out there with that speed and that intensity, that’s what we’re all about. “
The Cowboys have been undefeated since backup quarterback Cooper Rush took over in Week 2 following Dak Prescott’s injury, but their success can largely be credited to the effectiveness of the defense.

“It’s a beautiful thing to see your guys running around, making plays, having a good time,” Lawrence added. “One thing we teach each other is that we work so hard throughout our week, making sure that we have all the details in place, and now it’s time for us to get out there and party. That’s what we did today. We went out and had a good time. “
Matthew Stafford was sacked just three plays into the game, giving way to Lawrence’s fumble recovery for 19-yard touchdown. The Rams would be crowned victorious with two fourth-quarter turnovers.
” We’re real,” Micah Parsons, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, said. “We’re going keep proving it every week. One thing I have learned about us is that our team is tougher and more capable than we thought. This is a huge statement. “

Rush has been a solid performer for the Cowboys, but Sunday’s win marked the fewest yards he’s thrown in the 5-0 start to his career.
