Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs is already putting his name in the NFL Defensive Player of the Year conversation.
The former Alabama standout registered an interception in each of the first three games of the season, including a pick-six of Jalen Hurts in last week’s blowout win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Continuing to excel under new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Diggs was prepared to make Sam Darnold his latest victim against the Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon.
Diggs didn’t disappoint.
With Dallas up 26-14 in the third quarter, Diggs picked off a Darnold pass intended for Robby Anderson and returned it 23 yards to set up a Cowboys touchdown.
