3. Micah Parsons records three sacks

As a rookie, Micah Parsons had seven tackles, a pass deflection, and a quarterback hit in his debut against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bucs. While those stats are good, he wasn’t at his best just yet.

The first-round pick was still trying to figure the NFL out and had to go against the best quarterback in the game while doing so. Now one year later, he’s become a major playmaker and is willing to admit he wants to do what he can to get Brady out of the league.

"“We got to get him out of this league. He’s been dominating this league too long. He keeps coming back,” Parsons said via Clarence Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Just going through what he’s been able to do over these last couple years. I think everyone in the league can see it, and we voted him to be the No. 1 player. It’s a blessing to still be able to play him.”"

Parsons meant nothing malicious by this, as he not only praised Brady as the No. 1 player in the NFL but also compared him favorably to several superheroes. He just knows that if teams such as the Cowboys want to win it all, it would be easier without No. 12 on the field.

On Sunday, Parsons should do what he can to slow Brady down as this bold prediction claims he will rack up three sacks on the Tampa Bay signal-caller. Parsons had 13 as a rookie and wants more this season. What better way to reach that goal than to start off on fire?
