Anthony Spencer Hits Double-Digit Sacks For First Time

Spencer had 1.5 sacks on Sunday and now has ten on the year



    With a sack and a half in the win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Anthony Spencer hit a double-digit sack total for the first time in his career, with 10 on the season. DeMarcus Ware, who has 11.5 sacks on the year and has hit double-digits in each of the past seven seasons, was glad to see his fellow outside linebacker to join him.

    I talk to him every year (about that). It’s our goal,” Ware said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We say, ‘Let’s be the first two linebackers in the league to have double-digit sacks.’ To be that tandem.”

    Spencer and Ware are the first pair of Cowboys to have double-digit sacks since 2007, when Ware and Greg Ellis combined for 26.5--14 for Ware and 12.5 for Ellis.
