The New England Patriots are finally in the win column for the 2023 NFL season.
They limited their division rivals, the New York Jets, to ten points to go 1-2 after Week 3.
The Patriots’ defense hounded Jets quarterback Zach Wilson throughout the game, tallying three sacks and seven quarterback hits.
Edge rusher Matthew Judon had two of those sacks and finished with five total tackles.
New England will try to keep their momentum going when they face off with the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.
But as Judon pointed out, that’s easier said than done because their opponents have Micah Parsons.
“He’s been tearing it up ever since he got in the league. I think we would be disrespectful if we just called him a pass rusher, for real. He’s able to do anything and everything you ask him to do. And he’s willing. He does everything 100 miles per hour.”
“And you kind of say that about people, and they kind of luck into plays. But with him, there’s nothing luck about it. He has fortune on his side, but he plays with a motor only a few people have in this league. He’s definitely one of them. I’m a big fan,” Judon said about Parsons via The Athletic’s Cowboys writer Jon Machota.

While Judon has been a four-time Pro Bowler, Parsons has been a First Team All-Pro member in each of his first two NFL seasons.
Parsons already has four sacks in three games, and he will be looking for more when he faces quarterback Mac Jones.
Likewise, Judon will do whatever it takes to get to Dak Prescott.NEXT: Michael Irvin Shares His Expectations For Ezekiel Elliott Against Cowboys
