Cowboys Vs. Giants 2012: DeMarcus Ware Reaches 100 Sacks

Just a game into the 2012 NFL season, it didn't take Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware long to snare his 100th career sack during the Cowboys' 24-17 win over the New York Giants on Wednesday night.

On the first play of the second quarter, Ware wrangled Eli Manning to the MetLife Stadium turf for a 15-yard loss. In doing so, he became the 28th player in league history to record 100 sacks in a career.

Ware's 100 quarterback takedowns took 113 games to accomplish, the second-fastest ever behind only Hall of Famer Reggie White, who hit the century mark in a mere 96 games.

Following the game, Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr summed up his teammate's almost unparalleled talent in making quarterbacks as uncomfortable as possible (via a report by Rainer Sabin of The Dallas Morning News):

"He has an incredible ability to get after the quarterback," Carr said. "The best I've seen since I've started playing football."
