Anthony Spencer hits double-digit sacks

ARLINGTON, Texas -- When the Cowboys drafted Anthony Spencer in the first round in 2007 they envisioned a great sack tandem with DeMarcus Ware.

It finally took hold.

With 1.5 sacks Sunday of Ben Roethlisberger, Spencer has 10 sacks in a season for the first time in his career.

“I’m happy about it, but I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been doing,” Spencer said “I’m not going to change much. Trying to win games, that’s all that matters to me.”

With DeMarcus Ware’s 11.5 sacks the Cowboys have two players with 10 or more sacks in the same season since Ware (14) and Greg Ellis (12.5) accomplished the feat in 2007. It is the fifth time in franchise history the Cowboys has had two defenders with 10 or more sacks.

Ware’s half sack ups his career total to 111, unofficially tying him for second in team history with Randy White. Harvey Martin is the leader with 114 but Ware is recognized as the franchise leader because sacks weren’t recognized as an official stat until 1982.
