ARLINGTON, Texas -- DeMarcus Ware had his first multi-sack game Sunday since Week 5 vs. Tennessee, dropping Washington’s Rex Grossman twice.

Now with 11.5 sacks on the season, Ware set a team record with his fifth straight season with at least 10 sacks. He is more than halfway to his goal of setting the NFL record for most consecutive 10-sack seasons. Since sacks became an official league stat in 1982, Hall of Famer Reggie White has the most with nine.

The last defender to have five straight double-digit sack seasons was Simeon Rice from 2001-05.

“I think the main thing is being consistent,” said Ware, who had been tied with George Andrie and Jethro Pugh with four 10-sack seasons. “I harp on that and if I can do that every year, that’s a big accomplishment. But I’m looking forward to next week and Arizona and trying to get more. I always try to get pressure.”

Ware now has 16 multi-sack games in his career, three off the team mark shared by Greg Ellis and Jim Jeffcoat.
