Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs has an intercept goal for the last three games of the season. Diggs securing his 10th interception in Week 15 helped him get closer to the league record of 14.
The second-year professional revealed his number in an interview on Thursday.
joked that he could get another 10 in the last 3 games. “I don’t know. “I’m going to just go out there and try my best and see what comes up.”
Diggs is the NFL’s top corner, and he has impressed with his impressive numbers. Diggs’ 10 picks are three more that second-place J.C. Jackson from New England. Diggs is second in the NFL for passes defended with 19.
Diggs, a second-round selection from Alabama in 2020 has shown great improvement in his second season. Diggs started in every game except one, recording three interceptions as well as 14 passes defensed. He equaled his interception total from last year by Week 3, with a pick in each one of his three first games.
Diggs had seven interceptions in his six first 2021 games. Recent weeks have seen a decrease in production, probably due to opposing quarterbacks avoiding throwing his way.
His outstanding play has earned him his first Pro Bowl selection. There is potential for many more. It seems that he will be an All-Pro at the conclusion of this season.
