Trevon Diggs continues INT streak, ties Dallas Cowboys franchise record
Trevon Diggs is on another level.
The Dallas Cowboys defensive back and former Alabama star made yet another interception on Sunday against the New York Giants, which gave him 6 in 5 games to start this season. Diggs has tied Don Bishop as the only 2 players in franchise history to record an interception in a season’s first 5 games. Bishop did so in 1961, per the Dallas Morning News.
On this play, Diggs returned the pick 18 yards as the Cowboys led 24-13 at the time, and the Cowboys then tacked on a field goal.
Last week, Diggs was asked about opponents throwing away from him, but he hoped to continue at this level.
“I hope they continue to throw the ball, honestly through because I want to make those plays,” said Diggs, the second player in Cowboys history to record 5 picks in 4 games, to DallasCowboys.com. “I want more (chances), I want to be able to make those opportunities. If it happens it happens.”
