Micah Parsons trolls Andrew Thomas after Cowboys-Giants Thanksgiving game
Thomas had been one of the best left tackles in the league entering Thursday. In fact, he didn’t allow a single pressure in the team’s previous three games, per Pro Football Focus.
Ahead of the game, Thomas was listed as questionable due to an illness. After the game, Thomas didn’t use it as an excuse for his performance. The video below comes courtesy of SNY:
“I’m not making any excuses,” said Thomas. “I’ve got to play better. I let the team down today.”
Parsons was also listed as questionable heading into Thanksgiving due to ankle and knee injuries. He was cleared to play, and he obviously made an impact.
After this game, Parsons now has 37 solo tackles and 12 sacks to his credit for the season.
The Cowboys got the better of the Giants, as they completed the sweep. As for Parsons, he decided to throw some shade at Thomas.
