Trevon Diggs records NFL-leading 9th INT during Cowboys’ win over Saints, inches closer to history Diggs joins Everson Walls as the only Cowboys players to record at least nine interceptions in the first 12 games. Trevon Diggs did it again. The Cowboys cornerback helped secure the win Thursday when intercepting Saints quarterback Taysom Hill with less than five minutes remaining. The pick, which came while the defense was in Cover-2, was his NFL-leading ninth of the season. That total is tied for the third-most by a Cowboys player in franchise history. Everson Walls owns the club record with 11 interceptions, set in 1981. Mel Renfro recorded 10 picks in 1961. Diggs joins Walls as the only Cowboys players to record at least nine interceptions in the first 12 games. Walls was at 10 in this juncture in 1981. “It feels good,” Diggs said. “It’s a blessing, just going out there and competing and to make the plays I need to make to help this team win.” Diggs’ interception was one of four for the Cowboys on Thursday. It was the second of three on consecutive fourth-quarter drives. Safety Damontae Kazee had the first in that sequence. Defensive tackle Carlos Watkins had the third, returning his for a 29-yard touchdown. Safety Jayron Kearse recorded the other one in the second quarter. Watkins’ pick-six was the Cowboys’ fourth this year. “It’s definitely an early Christmas present,” said Watkins, who is listed at 297 pounds. “It’s every fat guy’s dream to get a pick and make it to the end zone. It’s every guy’s dream.” 📸 Location: Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana 🎥 Original Broadcast Date: Thursday December 2, 2021 (ICE-TV) ============================ Copyright Disclaimer: Copyright Disclaimer under Section 107 of the copyright act 1976, allowance is made for fair use for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, scholarship, and research.
