    Cowboys defensive end is now the franchise’s all-time sack leader, after surpassing Harvey Martin with a pair of sacks in the victory over the Rams on Sunday. Ware now has four sacks on the year, two in each of this last two games.

    "You think about the Dallas Cowboys and their tradition and what this record stands for," Ware said after the 31-7 win, per ESPN Dallas. "They have Charles Haley, Too Tall Jones, Randy White and being at the top, the pyramid let's me know how consistent I've been, and it was worth it."

    Ware now has 115 career sacks to Martin’s 114, and also leads the franchise in career multi-sack games with 28.

    “That was awesome," said defensive tackle Jason Hatcher. “It's awesome to play with that guy. He's one of the best who ever did it. He's the best, no disrespect to Charles Haley. (Ware) is just a freak. It's a privilege to play alongside a guy like that, a future Hall of Famer, just a great teammate, he loves his teammates, it couldn’t happen to a better guy. He's got a lot of juice in him. He looks like he's 25 years old.”
