Cowboys’ DaRon Bland Sets NFL’s Single-Season Pick-six Record On Thanksgiving Day

DaRon Bland made history on Thanksgiving Day by using the Cowboys’ yearly Thanksgiving Day game.

With his fifth pick-six of the season on Thursday, the Cowboys cornerback broke the NFL single-season record. He intercepted Commanders quarterback Sam Howell and avoided several pursuing tacklers while making a 63-yard return to pay dirt.

“To have the fans, the family, the coaches there and do it on Thanksgiving Day is another thing to be thankful for,” Bland said postgame on CBS. “On that play, I saw the ball, saw the receiver run an out route and I just had to go get it. And then, all I saw was open field.”

After Washington was crushed 45–10, the score gave fans even more reason to celebrate. It moved Bland past Eric Allen (1993), Jim Kearny (1972), and Ken Houston (1971), the three players he tied last week with his fourth interception touchdown.

According to NFL Research, Bland’s huge play also propelled the second-year cornerback to the top of the Cowboys franchise record for career pick-sixes.

This is just Bland’s most recent amazing performance in a season full of them. Prior to Week 3, Bland was forced into the starting lineup after Trevon Diggs tore his ACL during practice.

Ever since, Bland has become one of the best defensive playmakers in the league.

As of right now, the season, he has 48 tackles, 13 passes defensed, and 7 interceptions.

Since Week 1, Bland has never gone more than two games without a defensive touchdown. He still has six games left in the regular season to try to add to his incredible total.
