Well, Sean Lee was an absolute freak in his return to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Is anybody really surprised?
Lee missed the last three games with a strained hamstring but quickly made up for lost time against the Giants. He finished with a season-high 18 tackles and sealed the win with his first interception of the year with 3:16 to play of an Eli Manning pass that was deflected by cornerback Chidobe Awuzie.
"He is so damn productive," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told the Dallas Morning News. "It's great to see him back out there.
"He just has an instinct for the game and a feel for the game that's pretty unique. The other part of that is his preparation. No one works harder than him getting ready for the game. I believe if you combine his instinct and that preparation, it really allows him to play fast."
"He's an All-Pro player," linebacker Anthony Hitchens said, "and it showed."
"I'm just excited to be back," Lee said. "It's frustrating being out. You feel like you're letting your teammates down. But really the support I got during the injury is what motivates me to get back and motivates me to work harder. I wanted to perform when I [came] back and help this team. I love playing with this team, and I'm excited to be able to do it."
