Why is that significant?
He started only six last year before his season ended because of toe surgery.
Lee was credited with 11 tackles in Sunday’s 17-3 win against the Philadelphia Eagles, giving him double figures in five straight games and 88 for the season. Lee also added a tackle for loss, a pass deflection and a fourth-quarter interception of Matt Barkley.
Lee and cornerback Brandon Carr are tied for the team lead in interceptions with two apiece.
He played a big part of why LeSean McCoy was held to only 55 yards rushing.
But was it Lee’s best game?
“He plays a lot of good games,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He certainly was very productive defending the run. He had the interception. But he’s played a lot of really good football games. A few weeks ago, I think in a loss, I don’t know how many tackles he had, 18 or whatever he did, so he’s a pretty darn good football player and he seems to play that way week in and week out.”
